Don't Tase John David Booty's Bro!

Thursday, February 14, 2008

I don't know how many of you are like me and have never heard of FOX broadcaster Josh Booty, but apparently the dude get arrested for a DUI early yesterday morning. Not only that but the guy got tased and is the brother of USC QB John David Booty...

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Booty was taken to the Orange County Jail, where he was booked -- and that's when he went ballistic.

O.C. Sheriff's spokesperson Jim Amormino tell TMZ, "Booty was belligerent and uncooperative." Amormino says his deputies used a taser -- "less than lethal force" -- to contain him.

After being tased, Josh fell to the ground, hitting his head on the floor and cracking it open. He was taken to a hospital where he was stitched up.
Call me a bad Sports fan but up until now I've honestly never heard of Josh in the broadcasting world. Hopefully I can hear him on FOX though for years to come though....we needed someone to replace Bill Maas.

Bad sports fan...

For all your self righteous blustering and nit picking of announcers you often display extreme levels of ignorance. Josh Booty was a two sport star from LSU. He was a highly recruited QB and a highly drafted baseball player. He took a shot at both sports professionally, but never succeeded at the highest level. There was a time, very recently, when John David Booty was known as Josh Booty's brother.

Welcome to the sports world.

I'm gonna have to side with Steve on this one...When John David became the starter a couple of years ago, ESPN was full of stories about how talented he and his older brother.

Oh yeah...I know who he is. Didn't make the connection that they were brothers. And no Anon...Kevin Maas is not the same as ex-Football player and announcer Bill Mass (and they're not brothers).

Steve- Self righteous? Okaaaay.

I thought I recalled Mel Kiper saying over and over "Josh Booty" one year.

For those of you who don't know, the Bootys' father put together the football program at Evangel Christian in Shreveport. It is one of the most notorious "Jesus Football Academies" in the counrty. They've also had scandals involving improper relationships and coaches, illegally recruiting players, accusations of running up the score, and accusations of bad sportsmanship with players, coaches and parents. And now this.

I'm sure Jesus is proud of what the Bootys have done in their name.

Ha! Gotcha. I'm kidding about the self righteous stuff. I read everyday and love it all. Keep up the good work and watch for the flame bait.

No worries Steve. I still can't believe I didn't make the connection....I looked him up and all it said was Practice Squad QB for the Raiders. I know I've never heard/seen him on FOX.

It makes sense that he was once with the Raiders and is now having trouble with the law. Who was riding shotgun with him, Barrett Robbins?

Josh Booty played for the Portland Sea Dogs a few years back when they were still affiliated with the Marlin's. A buddy of mine said how bad a player Booty was. On the next pitch Booty hit one approximately 425 feet over the center field fence. He actually did stink but that was a pretty funny moment.

I saw him play A ball in Kane County. Same thing, he hit like .210 but when he got ahold of a pitch would just crank it. He got a big signing bonus from the Marlins and then tried to give it back so he could go play football. The Marlins didn't let him out and he didn't go back to school to play football till his contract was up.

There was also a 3rd brother, Abram Booty, who was a WR at LSU and graduated around the time that Josh came back to school.
