FORT LAUDERDALE (CBS4) - Broward County Sheriff Al Lamberti expressed his anger and ordered an investigation Friday into the treatment a Miami Dolphins player received at the county jail; he alleges he received special treatment.
Miami Dolphin Phillip Merling practiced on Friday after being released from the jail a day earlier. BSO Sheriff Lamberti said Merling received special treatment by being released through a side door at the jail to avoid reporters, and he was given a ride home by a BSO employee.

The woman is in some danger by his being released. Not too good.
Jeez, can you imagine? The guy abusing you gets dropped off at your home by the cops?
I actually thought it was a “Dolphin”, aka “Flipper”. lol
Merling is the fourth Dolphin arrested in recent months. Head coach Tony Sparano called the arrest frustrating
N.F.L. = National Felon League.
In the 'good old days' these mutts wouldn't get a first look by NFL teams. NO MATTER THEIR SKILLS.
In Ditka's 2nd year as Coach of Da Bears he released a Wide Receiver - who already made the team - after the fourth pre-season game. Reason, the kid tested positive for pot after a pee test.
Now that kid would get a $50 Fine, a nasty letter from the Commissioner and he'd START the 1st game of the season.
Oh, and the kid was White.
(yep a White WR, that's how long ago it was)
I remember the “old” days in Pittsburgh when art Rooney would NOT tolerate bums and thugs playing on his football team.
The Sheriff is obviously not seeking a seat in the owner’s box at Dolphin games.
