Here’s the AP story, courtesy of ESPN.

Not much else to say about this one. You just wonder whether trouble follows the guy or he drags it around with him.

If I didn’t know better, I would think Sampson had a hand in getting Hardy to come play football at IU. Seems like his type, great athlete, terrible human being.

This seems to be a non-story as far as Hardy is concerned. Seems like Marshawn Lynch is the one on the hot seat.

The guy was in the car that Lynch was driving that hit this girl. That makes him a terrible human being Nate? I would hate to see what you think of yourself if that is all it takes to become a terrible human being.

I know you are thinking you are going to bring up the smacking his girlfriend stuff…….those charges were dropped. Doesnt even show on his record, so its as if it never happened to everyone that matters in the case (no, you fans’ opinions dont legally matter).

From what I read it sounds like the front office guys in the Bills organization have the most to be worried about here behind Lynch.

He puts himself in the wrong situations constantly.. What do you call someone that never learns from their own mistakes? He may stay out of trouble this time, but is poor decisions will catch up with him now that he has all that money to spend… Hardy in New York city is a ticking time bomb!

NFL

Who says Hardy was in the vehicle? Reading the report, it says nothing about him being in the vehicle, just that he might have information.

The article says the intend to subpoena several Bills executives over this. Were all the executives in the car?

This is a very strange situation.

Mike P – The article towards the bottom says “DeGeorge declined to say whether investigators believe the players subpoenaed were in the SUV at the time of the accident.”

They were in the vehicle or there would be no reason to want to talk to hardy or the other two guys if they were no where near the accident when it happened. The executives may have been keeping info from the investigators for whatever reason. That is where they come in from what I read.

The bottom line is that Hardy is only being brought up at all on this blog because he played for IU. He is not at the center of the incident because its already been determined that Lynch was driving. Hardy was just a side piece of the article to begin with.

Caleb, let’s take a look at what he has done over the past 4 years:

Struck his girlfriend
Pulled a gun on his dad on Mother’s Day
Now this

I think it is safe to say that James and trouble go hand in hand.

Caleb,

My bad! I didn’t know he wasn’t charged for smacking his girl around, I guess that makes it OK. I know his father also did not press charges when he beat the hell out of him and pulled a gun on the neighbor that tried to stop him. As long as his loved ones don’t mind his anger issues, then the rest of us should not have any problems with them either. My mistake.

I think hardy pushed the girl in front of the car.

Caleb,

Hardy is a teammate and is known to hang out with Lynch outside team functions. It could be as simple as they may think he talked to Hardy and want to know if Hardy knows anything, not that Hardy was a passenger.

Hardy also has a past, and his past will make him grab headlines in the future. Even though charges were dropped and/or never filed, in the eye of public opinion, you always have people like Zachroyse, Nate & Kenny_G that have judged him guilty off a newspaper article, and they will always be guilty regardless that the evidence didn’t support prosecution and/or an arrest in a certain case, much less being able to call him guilty.
