Mandatory Credit: Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY SportsFormer New York Giants safety Tyler Sash is the subject of today's most interesting athlete arrest story. By far.

Sash was arrested early Saturday morning in Oskaloosa, Iowa, and charged with public intoxication and interference with official acts by police.

Police saw him driving a motorized scooter in the middle of the night with no lights, and tried to pull him over. He proceeded to lead them on a chase that eventually resulted in the police subduing him with a taser.

Here are the details via ESPN:
According to multiple reports, police spotted Sash at approximately 1:30 a.m. riding a motorized scooter with its lights off and asked him to stop.

Sash, however, reportedly refused on multiple occasions, leading police on a four-block chase before leaving the scooter and fleeing on foot.

Police eventually found Sash hiding behind a tree and, after the 25-year-old refused to come out, shot him with a Taser.

Sash's NFL career is already over, since the Giants cut him before last season and no one showed interest in signing him but it would have been interesting to see how Roger Goodell handled this one.
