Arkansas State cornerback Paul Stephens apparently found this out the hard way last week, as he entered a house in Jonesboro in the middle of the night and ended up getting shot in the midsection by an angry resident. When police arrived at the scene, 25-year-old Antonio Williams told them that someone had tried to break into his house, and that he'd shot the would-be intruder. Cops then found out that Stephens, a starting d-back for the ASU Red Wolves, had been treated at a local hospital for a gunshot wound to the midsection. He was promptly arrested and charged.
Stephens was kicked off the team soon thereafter, although coach Steve Roberts did offer him wishes for "good health and a speedy recovery from his injury." Give him our regards as well — plus 38 points on our board.
