Cam Newton

I was listening to Paul Finebaum two days ago and heard his interview with I think the Auburn beat writer for Auburn-Opelika News and they were talking about new qb Cam Newton's arrest at Florida for stealing a lap top. The beat writer called it a "misunderstanding." I thought about it and wrote the Gainesville Sun senior reporter Robbie Andreur asking what happened. Here is his response:

He was arrested for stealing a computer. When the police knocked on his dorm door, he threw the computer out of the window. He pleaded no contest and was put on probation for six months. His father has since claimed that Cam bought the computer not knowing it was stolen. So, there are conflicting reports out there. But he was arrested and did plead out..
