LSU cornerback Tharold Simon was arrested in Eunice, La., Thursday night on multiple charges, including intimidating a police officer.

Simon, an NFL draft prospect, was charged with public intimidation, resisting an officer, and unnecessary noise violation. He was then released on a bond.

Lafayette's KATC TV3 reported that Simon's car was blocking a street when an officer asked him to move it. He told the officer, "I own Eunice," and "I'm gonna buy these projects and you are gonna be mine," before finally moving his car, according to the police report.

Simon reportedly spun his wheels, "backed the vehicle in an aggressive manner" and turned his radio "all the way up" while moving his car.

He then reportedly told the officer "the mayor was on (his) side" and the officer would be fired if he wrote him a ticket.

Simon, a graduate of Eunice (La.) High School, is scheduled to be honored by the city during a ceremony Friday night.

Despite the arrest, Eunice Mayor Rusty Moody said "Tharold Simon Day" festivities will go as planned.

"In the United States, our justice system says everyone is innocent until proven guilty," Moody said.

Simon is expected to be picked in the middle rounds of the NFL draft this weekend

What an idiot. Well your draft stock just plummeted. Shows a lot about his character....or lack there of.

Uh Huh.......
“20 witnesses” say Simon did nothing wrong | ProFootballTalk
Instead of being drafted Thursday night, LSU cornerback Tharold Simon was arrested.

His agent, Peter Schaffer, says that Simon is innocent.

“I have spent the better part of the morning investigating this matter, including getting statements from over 20 witnesses,” Schaffer told PFT by phone. “The witnesses corroborate that Tharold did nothing wrong, certainly nothing illegal, and he acted with dignity and class throughout the entire ordeal. I am 100 percent certain that no charges will be filed. We are looking into pursuing a lawsuit against the office for violation of Tharold’s civil rights.

“I am appalled by the behavior of the Eunice, Louisiana police department.”

That may or may not be enough to boost Simon’s draft stock. If it’s not, Simon’s potential damages could include the money he would have made if the untimely blemish hadn’t pulled him down the board.
