Barnett goes clubbing

Green Bay Packers linebacker Nick Barnett was arrested early Sunday after a disturbance at a nightclub. Police said in a statement that Barnett was taken into custody for battery after allegedly being involved in a physical altercation about 2 a.m. at the Wet. In a statement the team said, "We are aware of the incident in Appleton involving Nick Barnett. The Packers organization is going to defer further comment until we have had a chance to speak with Nick and gather more facts."

How cliche are these types of arrests getting for the NFL? After Throwing Smoke studying football player arrests over the past 8 months, here is how they all play out:

1. Choose your type of club - Strip or Night
2. Choose your victim - Stripper, bouncer, another guy moving in on your chick.
3. Arrest and booking.
4. Trip to see Goodell
5. Repeat until career is over.
