It's getting quite ridiculous how the police force has seeminly done a 180 when it comes to media-known persons. Back in the day if a local hero or well known figure did something like this, it would be a "crime" to put their name in the headline, now it's the opposite. People like Kennedy are getting thrust into the spotlight for things your average citizen would be usually let off for.
I'm not saying that coaches/players etc. should not be held accountable for their actions, but events like this just seem absurd. Whenver I hear a story like this i always replace the person of action with a 'fellow police officer of the arresting officer' and ask myself whether or not his name would be in the papers. 99.9% of the time the answer is no. So while this doesn't exhonerate the coaches/players of the world, it does show quite a shocking example of how cops act in our society.
