TMZSports: The NFL has suspended Malik McDowellfor 2 games in the wake of TMZ Sportsposting footage showing the defensive lineman fighting a cop at a Michigan gas station.
The 23-year-old is currently a free agent but had a meeting with the Dallas Cowboys during the offseason. If he signs with a team for the 2019 season or beyond, he’ll miss his first 2 games.
As we previously reported, the 6’6″, 300-pound lineman was arrested back in February after he got violent with a police officer during a routine traffic stop.
In surveillance footage obtained by TMZ Sports, you can see McDowell get physical with the cop … even after the officer deploys his taser on the NFL player.
Eventually, backup arrived … and multiple officers were able to subdue McDowell. He’s now facing multiple criminal charges including assault and battery.
McDowell is also facing criminal charges for his alleged role in the theft of pickup truck.
Seems chill. Yet a little aggressive? Maybe just what the Boys need to get over the hump?
For real though, that’s who the Cowboys are interviewing in the offseason? Yikes. Maybe turn the focus on figuring out how to pay Dak or Zeke? Or at minimum just not on guys who are fighting cops and facing two game suspensions? Just my take though.
