Claude Terrell arrested for rape

Former St. Louis Rams offensive lineman Claude Terrell has been arrested for rape in Texas City, TX today. Terrell is accused of beating and forcing sex on a woman at gunpoint for a period of seven hours. It's a pretty horrific crime by any measure. 

Terrell hasn't played football in the NFL since the Rams kicked his sorry arse to the curb in October 2007, when he was arrested for domestic assault on his wife...while he was on probation for another assault. 

The Rams drafted Terrell in the fourth round of the 2005 NFL draft. It was a banner year for character as the Rams also drafted Richie Incognito that year. Still, all the boneheaded plays in the world can't compare to the level of crime Terrell is charged with.
