Miami Hurricanes linebacker Ramon Buchanan has been arrested and may face felony charges after allegedly attempting to headbutt a police officer and spitting in the officer’s hand, and allegedly saying, “I’m a UM football player and I don’t give a fuck what you do. I’ll get out of it.”  All of this information has been taken from the police incident report.

He has been suspended by the team indefinitely after being charged with resisting arrest with violence and battery after being apprehended by police at Fat Tuesday’s in the Grove.  The charge is a felony.

In a statement, Coach Al Golden said, “This is out of character for a young man who has been a positive influence in our program. He is contrite and apologetic for the situation and is currently taking the appropriate actions towards resolution.”

  1. What was he thinking? Likely, no thinking going on at all. Actions have consequences and the sooner people realize this the better. Shame on Buchanan. Had he left when asked, more than likely, there would be no story (or arrest) to report.
