Igor Olshansky: The Second Former Miami Dolphins Player Arrested This Week

Broward Sheriff's Office

Former Miami Dolphins defensive lineman Igor Olshansky was arrested yesterday afternoon -- the day after he was waived by the team -- becoming the second former Fin to be arrested this week, after ex-wide receiver David Boston was popped for allegedly punching a woman.

Olshansky, 29, was one of 280 people arrested during a two-day operation this week by the Broward Sheriff's Office.

According to an arrest report, the cops walked into his condo and found the six-foot-five, 300-pound Olshansky rolling a joint at his kitchen table.

The BSO's Dani Moschella says she can't tell the Pulp exactly why the cops were in his condo, only that they were there as part of the drug-enforcement operation.

The report goes on to say that Olshansky also had a clear bag with 19 grams of a substance that tested positive for marijuana that was sitting on the table in front of him.

Olshansky was transported to the Broward County Jail on one count of possessing less than 20 grams of marijuana but has since been released.

Olshansky was drafted by the San Diego Chargers in 2004 and played there until spending the 2009 and 2010 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys.

He played with the Dolphins for eight games this season, recording only four tackles. He was waived by the team on Wednesday, along with kicker Shayne Graham.

Most likely, they already had him staked out, maybe got a warrant by rifling his dealer's cell phone records. They stockpile guys like him so that they can do these roundups every once in a while. Rack 'em up, round 'em up. Wheee!

This, while strong arm robbers rule the streets. Great job, BSO!

P.S.: "Operation Cold Turkey"? More like Operation Catching-Bad-Guys-Is-Too-Much-Work.


Fools takes drugs, as it improves nothing in their lives.  This is a matter of no concern to no one with a brain.  Let the fools go happily to ruin and spend the police dollars catching violent or thieving criminals.  A better use of the funds.

An appeal to all Prohibitionists:

Most of us are aware by now that individuals who use illegal drugs are going to get high, 'no matter what.' So why do you not prefer they acquire them in stores that check IDs and pay taxes? Gifting the market in narcotics to ruthless criminals, foreign terrorists and corrupt law enforcement officials is seriously compromising our future. If you remotely believe that people will one day quit using any of these 'at present' illegal drugs, then you are exhibiting a degree of naivety parallel only with those poor deluded wretches who voluntarily drank the poisoned Kool-Aid in Jonestown. 

Even if you cannot stand the thought of people using drugs, there is absolutely nothing you, or any government, can do to stop them. We have spent 40 years and over a trillion dollars on this dangerous farce. Practically everybody is now aware that Prohibition will not suddenly and miraculously start showing different results. So why do you wish to continue with a policy that has proven itself  to be a poison in the veins of our once so proud & free nation? Do you actually think you may have something to lose If we were to start basing drug policy on science & logic instead of ignorance, hate and lies? 

Maybe you're a police officer, a prison guard or a local politician. Possibly you're scared of losing employment, overtime-pay, the many kick-backs and those regular fat bribes. But what good will any of that do you once our society has followed Mexico over the dystopian abyss of dismembered bodies, vats of acid and marauding thugs carrying gold-plated AK-47s with leopard-skinned gunstocks? 

Kindly allow us to forgo the next level of your sycophantic prohibition-engendered mayhem. 

Prohibition Prevents Regulation : Legalize, Regulate and Tax!

Hendley is there more to this story? I mean, is this really what the BSO does with its time? I think that's the bigger story.


What an unbelievable waste of time, money and resources.  Violent criminals rome free so that we can make room for pot smokers.  What a joke.
