If you had Ko Simpson in your “first NFL player to get arrested in the new year” pool, you’re a big winner today. The Bills safety even played the “do you know who I am?” card to police before being arrested in Rock Hill, South Carolina. It didn’t work, mostly because identifying yourself as a Bill isn’t exactly going to work in your favor these days.
Simpson says he was just checking on his friend, Frederick Hart, who was detained by security at a local bar when he sped through the parking lot while a fracas of some sort was occurring in the wee hours of New Year’s morning. Sounds like Rock Hill knows how to party.
The most hilarious part of the story comes from what Simpson was allegedly shouting repeatedly to officers in the parking lot.
