As he will occasionally do this time of year, Mike Price injected some levity into Tuesday's practice. About 15 minutes in, a police car drove to the middle of the practice field with its lights and siren on. Price assembled the team, then hollered for help as he was handcuffed and loaded in the back of the car.
One player encouraged the police to taze him.
The squad car then drove off the field and as soon as it was behind the equipment shed, officers helped Price out of the car, uncuffed him and he returned to practice.
"They had heard last weekend I was trying to shoot some eagles down," Price explained. "They heard I had a super plan to shoot some white horned owls in Houston this weekend, so they arrested me. But I have a permit in Harris County, from the city of Houston, to shoot owls so they let me go."
