Legal Issues Continue for DT Fred Evans

Dolphins defensive tackle Fred Evans will have more than just a little explaining to do if he ever has the opportunity to meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell about his off-field behavior.  The Miami Herald reports that Evans, who was arrested on multiple charges Sunday morning including battery on a police officer, already is on probation in Texas from an arrest in February.  Evans later pleaded no contest to the charge of misdemeanor marijuana possession.

Carolyn Olson, who is the prosecuting attorney on that case, potentially could factor Evans’ more recent arrest in Florida when deciding whether a probation violation has occurred.  ”The probation department will verify whatever information they receive,” said Olson, who works in Colorado County, where the arrest occurred. “They will send a violation report to me if they feel like it’s substantiated.  “Then, I’ll review it and make a decision on whether to file the motion to potentially revoke probation.”  Regardless of what happens legally, Evans – entering his second season – is now more likely to suffer major punishment from the league, because it is his second arrest in a year.
