Jojuan Armour

Any news on his legal situation?

Is he expected in camp?

Arraigned and awaiting trial for fellony assault. Faces up to eight years in jail.

It appears the door has been opened for Armour to attend camp, assuming the cats want him back.

:cowboy:

"Mr. Armour, a linebacker for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the Canadian Football League, was charged with stabbing Timothy Hightower, 23. A police officer witnessed the fight involving a group of men and used pepper spray to stop them from fighting after they did not follow his orders. Police said Mr. Armour got into a scuffle with the officer when he was being arrested.

Yesterday, Judge Gary Cook continued Mr. Armour’s recognizance bond. Defense attorney Myron Duhart asked that Mr. Armour be allowed to join his team for the start of training in Canada at the end of the month. Judge Cook gave Mr. Armour permission to do so, but cautioned him that he would face punishment if he failed to appear for his next court date, which was set for June 18."

If cheerleaders can be fired for being raunchy on Howard Stern, shouldn't Jojuan Armour be accountable for his off-field actions?

Lets just put him in jail before/without trial. He’s been charged…not found of any guilt yet.

IMO, the quote from the Police file that Mike had posted is reason enough for the Cats to diciplice Armour or consider not bringing him to camp. I am not talking whether he is guilty of the stabbing or not. Scuffling with a police officer while being arrested is a fact not debatable that I have issue with.

I agree to a certain point but this is what I dont get. Why, if the person is violent, scuffle with police, etc. would the judge allow him to come up to Canada. For some reason I think the reports are a little exaggerated.

I'm with whoknows on this one. He hasn't been convicted of anything yet. If he's convicted and has to serve time, that makes this a non-issue. He won't be able to come back at that point.

You have a point there about the report. As for why the judge would allow him to go to camp, reading between the lines it sounds like there was a plea made to allow him to go and the judge agreed and warned him not to miss his court date(s).

We weren't there so obviously we really have no idea what happened. As long as Marcel and Charlie are satisfied with the situation and whatever they decide regarding his status I would support.

I think Jojuan has played well for us and hope the best for him.

Apparently this is out of character for Juan.

That's why his lawyers were able to get permission
for him to leave his country to come to Training Camp.

It is only fair to let Juan retain 'status quo'
with the team for now while he has his day in court.

Yeah and it was out of character for those girls to be silly on that guy’s show – but they still got canned. I have nothing against him as a person, but if you’re going to fire people for questionable character then you should at least be universal about it.

I think the difference here is that he's innocent until proven guilty. They were on the show. There is no question about that.

Didnt the girls quit and werent fired?

they were pretty much coerced into quitting

Come on....your grabbing at air now. One is back on the team this year.

I hear Saskatchewan is asking for his rights :slight_smile:

Are you sure about that mate?

i jus think its funny because he is a former cinci bengal, all those guys r staying in alotta trouble, now even former ones lol

I agree with the above statement. We know what the girls did since they were heard by millions of listeners. Besides, one of them is now back with the cheerleading squad.

Armour however, has not been PROVEN guilty and until he is, he should be given the benefit of the doubt.

If he IS proven guilty, I think his CFL career should end and I also disagree with allowing the cheerleader back on to her team. The team (league) must show consistency in these issues.

Simply my opinion.

Innocent until proven guilty also extends to scuffling with police. We do not know exacty what happened that night; maybe the police used excessive force.

As for the cheerleaders, give the girls a break. They are in their early twenties, thrust into the entertainment spotlight, and made some poor choices. Although I believe in consequences, I think we have to put ourselves in their shoes and consider foregiveness.
