College Football Star Begins "Elderly Bus Driver Assault" Offseason Workout

March 23, 2010

Since college football teams aren’t allowed to practice until later this spring, players are forced to find their own ways to keep in shape. For one massive defensive lineman, this meant beating the crap out of a 65-year-old bus driver (like a champ).

J.R. Sweezy, who stands at 6-foot-5 and 293 pounds, has been charged with misdemeanor assault of a defenseless old man following an altercation outside of a bus.

According to reports, after the elderly driver asked Sweezy to leave the bus for acting loud, obnoxious and drunk, the North Carolina State defensive tackle knocked his tip jar over and made a “not so nice” comment.

For some unexplained reason, this upset the driver and he attempted to confront Sweezy. Big mistake.

The hulking football player did what any rational human being would do after degrading a hard working, old bus driver. He hit him, repeatedly.

Since the police got involved Sweezy has been suspended indefinitely and has been discouraged from assaulting any more 65-year-old men or municipal employees.
