Barnett Busted

620WTMJ radio in Milwaukee is reporting tonight that Packers linebacker Nick Barnett was arrested in Appleton, WI, Saturday night following an altercation in a nightclub.

WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee reported that Barnett was in Appleton to play in Brett Favre's charity softball tournament today. They said he was removed from the nightblub about 2 a.m. in handcuffs and charged with battery. He was later released. He did not play in the softball tournament.

The Packers released a brief statement essentially saying little until more facts are known.

Given that Barnett is one of the supposed leaders of the team, folks may have to re-think that one.

Stay tuned.
