While ESPN the Magazine writer Tom Friend was talking on the phone around midnight, Clarett began talking about all he had regretted, and eventually started rambling, and began getting paranoid that someone was listening to the conversation. Later that night, Clarett made an illegal U-turn, and the police chased him for 4 miles. After getting Clarett out of the car, they tried to handcuff him to no avail. After resisting arrest, they shot Clarett with a stun gun, but it didn't seem to work, so they maced him and finally got him handcuffed. After inspecting his car, police found 4 loaded guns, including an assault rifle similar to an AK-47, and then found out that the reason their stun gun hadn't worked was because Clarett was wearing a bulletproof vest. Such a shame to see a talent go to waste like this. He can blame noone but himself for his problems.
