Jon Sandusky, Browns Exec and Son of Jerry Sandusky, Arrested on DUI Suspicion
Jon Sandusky, Cleveland Browns director of player personnel and son of incarcerated ex-Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, was arrested in Fargo, N.D. on Tuesday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence, according to InForum.com.
The 36-year-old Sandusky was reportedly stopped at 1:50 a.m. local time after making an illegal turn. After failing field sobriety tests, Sandusky was arrested and booked as he was determined to be impaired.
Sandusky posted bail later on Tuesday, according to the report.
Sandusky has since pled guilty and the charge was dismissed.
The Associated Press (via Yahoo!) has an update on the legal proceedings against Jon Sandusky:
Cleveland Browns executive Jon Sandusky has pleaded guilty to refusing a chemical test when he was pulled over for suspicion of drunken driving in Fargo.
Defense attorney Mark Friese (freeze) says Sandusky received a suspended sentence Tuesday in Fargo Municipal Court and was placed on unsupervised probation that requires him to complete a chemical dependency evaluation.
The DUI charge was dismissed.
While the reasoning behind Sandusky's presence in North Dakota has yet to be confirmed, InForum.com is reporting that a man in a Browns jacket was seen at North Dakota State University on Tuesday, so it is likely that Sandusky was on a scouting trip.
The Sandusky family has been in the news for all the wrong reasons over the past few years, although the vast majority of that falls on the shoulders of Jon's father.
Jerry Sandusky, 69, was sentenced to between 30 and 60 years in prison last year after being convicted of sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years.
The elder Sandusky served as an assistant coach under legendary Penn State head coach Joe Paterno for 30 years, most notably as the team's defensive coordinator. Sandusky was even viewed as a potential candidate to succeed Paterno before his abrupt retirement in 1999.
Jon Sandusky has largely flown under the radar, but this incident certainly won't endear him to the Browns organization, which he became a part of in 2010 after nine seasons in the Philadelphia Eagles personnel department. He played safety at Penn State from 1996-99, where he also got his degree in exercise science.
