Oilers’ Rookie Charged With DisCon

December 5, 1998

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ Tennessee Oilers defensive back George McCullough is on the inactive list for Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens after being arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.

McCullough, 23, was arrested around 2 a.m. Thursday in a downtown nightclub district after an officer found him with blood on his face and shirt, yelling that he had been attacked. He was with Louis Adams, a linebacker who was cut from the Oilers last summer.

The officer, who was off-duty and working security in the area, asked McCullough to leave but he refused.

Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron said McCullough and Adams ``passively resisted arrest by not complying with the officers’ directions.″

They were released on $2,000 bond each.

McCullough, a 5-foot-10, 187-pound rookie who played college football for Baylor, has been inactive in seven of the Oilers’ 11 games this season.

``It’s obviously disappointing that we’ve got a guy out at 2 o’clock or 3 o’clock partying instead of thinking about the game and the team,″ said Oilers’ general manager Floyd Reese.

``He’s got to be held responsible for what he did and it’s certainly not something we’re going to put up with for very long, I’ll tell you that.″
