((HT: WSVN-TV Miami))
The Broward County ((FL)) Sheriff's Office is trying to figure out whether or not they gave "special treatment" to Miami Dolphins DE Phillip Merling after his release on bond after an aggravated battery charge back on Wednesday. Merling is accused of hitting his pregnant girlfriend at their home.
Everyone, normally, goes through the front door upon exit. Merling, however, was taken around to a side door and escorted home by a BSO deputy in a marked police car once he posted his $15,000 bond.
Sufficed to say some folks, including the sheriff, are slightly more than angry if this was the case.
Derek Hayward got to stand in front of the jail...
Merling was at Dolphins mini-camp Friday going through his standard toe-touchies and stretchings. Head Coach Tony Sparano is deferring to the league until all the information is in on the charge.
Stunner there, but the HQ can see a suspension in Merling's future...
