Zayd Issah won’t be playing for the Nittany Lions. The vaunted recruit got his ass thrown in jail on Saturday as four cops were necessary to subdue the in-yo-face 6’4″ 200 lb linebacker. He has been charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and having a personal stash of pot.
Recall that this is the same dude who was previously embroiled in a counterfeiting case that sort of put him on his best behavior if he wanted to come to Penn State. You know, like that Big Mac on which he spent the bogus bill was that important, right? Moron.
So, give the guy another chance and what does he do? Shows his true colors. He gets into a fight with some folks and then when a cop grabs him by the wrist, he goes nuclear. Two of the four cops sustained minor injuries. The pot find was incidental to the rest of the charges, discovered when they searched the thug.
Issah will get what he deserved. Bye, bye college career. No way the NFL would ever touch him, anyway. They don’t want another Aaron Hernandez running around making them look bad.
A bail hearing this morning allowed his parents to post $2,000 of the required $20,000 bond to get him out of the slammer, they did this with the help of bail bond service called Connecticut Bail Bonds Group and if they do, he’ll go home with them to H-burg. Issah had been in a probationary program for first-time offenders after the counterfeit fiasco. Now, the Dauphin County district attorney says he’ll file documents to remove the moron from the program, which means he’ll face felony charges for that past “mistake”.
Bill O’Brien stated that after Saturday’s incident, if the charges hold, the football program is no longer interested in Issah. I think that’s a foregone conclusion.

Good riddance, knucklehead…I bet he will get picked up by Temple, Pitt or OSU….it’ just that he is misunderstood

I’ll take that bet. I think he’s done himself in, and as such, he has no future in football, except perhaps on a prison team coached by Ol Jer.
one only hopes this kid can get it together soon.
The Nittany Turkey says
I wish I could be that optimistic. I was all for giving him a second chance until this episode. Maybe a stint at a reform school, as lawrence suggests, might do him some good, but as a two-time loser, the chances of him being rehabbed are slim.
Just look at the Penn Staters who walked on the dark side. How many of them became productive citizens afterward? I guess Bobby Engram is an example of one who could overcome a bad experience — with a lot of help from Joe Paterno. But guys like Chisley, Larry and Ed Johnson, Anwar Phillips — where are they now.
I think we’re fortunate that this clown didn’t wait until after he was wearing the blue and white to go off.
