Book ‘Em, Danno: Ex-Hawaii QB Chang Arrested

The knock on former Hawaii quarterback Timmy Chang coming out of college was that he lacked the arm strength to be an NFL quarterback, which explains why he’s out of football after bouncing through the NFL and CFL after leaving the Warriors as the NCAA’s all-time passing leader.

But perhaps a team should give him a call after the display of pure throwing power that Chang allegedly put on last month. That is, if he doesn’t wind up doing jail time, as the HONOLULU ADVERTISER says he was arrested for chucking a woman’s camera onto the roof of a building after she started taking pictures of a brawl he was allegedly involved in. Someone needs to get Steve McGarrett on the case.

According to police reports, Chang was part of a large brawl last month, and a woman walking past started taping the incident on her video camera. So he allegedly did the only sensible thing: he ripped the camera from the woman and tossed it onto the roof of a nearby building. Which is surprising, since I didn’t think that a Hawaii quarterback was capable of making a throw of more than five yards.

Chang was arrested on Thursday morning on a charge of second-degree robbery. Since quitting his football career, he had moved back to Hawaii and had planned to work as a student assistant with UH’s athletic department, but hadn’t been hired yet. I think that final interview could be a little awkward.

And I thought Colt Brennan was the Hawaii quarterback with the questionable character?
