Raiders WR Murphy arrested


Oakland Raiders wide receiver Louis Murphy was reportedly arrested early Sunday morning and charged with possession of a drug without a valid prescription, failure to obey a police officer and resisting arrest without violence.

According to a report in the Gainesville Sun, police said Murphy was spotted in his Cadillac Escalade as music played loudly from the vehicle. Murphy drove to a parking lot after being asked to pull over and, along with his passengers, left the SUV and walked away.

Murphy refused to show his ID and it took three officers to place him in custody, the paper reported.

The possession charge came after officers found a “non-labeled prescription bottle containing 11 individual pills later identified as Viagra.”

All three charges are misdemeanors.

Murphy has played the last two seasons with Oakland, catching 75 passes for 1,130 yards and six touchdowns in 30 games. He played college football at Florida.
