WDAE Tampa's Ian Beckles Arrested.

9-17-2012

Beckles is accused of disorderly conduct and touching a police horse following a concert. The 45-year old, former Tampa Bay Buc, was allegedly slurring his words when police asked him to move away from traffic. Police say Beckles slapped an officer on the back and said, "OK, tough guy." He continued to heckle the police officers and then after being warned not to, he touched one of the police horses. Beckles was released on $100 bail three hours after his arrest. WDAE in Tampa is owned by Clear Channel

have to agree with Collins...whatever and how the police handle this, should be accepted by all..the station has an employee that has an issue with the police and therefore must handle it ...working together a conclusion can be found that is best for everyone....

I am a frequent listener to the Ron and Ian Show and normally appreciate Ian's "tough guy" comment when directed at a mis-guided caller. However, Ian did not do himself a favor by acting like a fool when he has been very vocal in calling out local sports figure for "acting the fool" himself.
