Misi, 25, was picked up by sheriff’s deputies on a felony arrest warrant out of California, according to court papers. The charge pending in Santa Barbara County, Calif., where Misi was born, is listed in records at “battery causing serious injuries.”
Misi was arrested at home in Weston by the Broward County Sheriff‘s fugitive squad. I’m told the deputies rang his door bell, and the 6-foot-3, 260-pound footballer surrendered without incident.
A second draft pick out of the University of Utah in 2010, Misi is considered a future defensive star of the team. He had 52 tackles and 5.5 sacks over the past two seasons.
Said Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene: “We are aware of the situation. We’re in the process of gathering information. As a result, we will refrain from commenting.”
