Malik McDowell was once a promising NFL prospect, whose career never began, and is out of the league! Perhaps the NFL will give him a second chance after seeing this video of Malik fighting and tackling a police officer! 😂😂😂 https://t.co/2ez5MKss0T

Malik McDowell was charged with multiple offences after he plucked out the darts and attacked the officer. The defensive lineman is definitely not afraid of Tasing but the incident may not be in the best interest for his career that is yet to take off.
Drunk and over-speeding Malik McDowell rebels
The 6’6″ 300 pounds defensive lineman is never the one to back out. But when it was his mistake, truly he should have. The 23 year old was drunk twice more than the permitted limit. He was pulled up by a police officer and was asked to keep seated in his car.
The former Seahawk pick though asked to talk to the supervisor. As seen in a video by TMZ, Malik McDowell left his car and entered a convenience store nearby. The police officer went after him and tried to tase him to no avail. Malik McDowell hit back and a fight ensued resulting in dismantling of food items.
McDowell charged with multiple offences
Other officers then interrupted the fight. One of them claimed that Malik reached out for his gun when he tried to grab him. He was later charged with counts of felony assaulting and resisting, one misdemeanor count of operating while intoxicated and misdemeanor driving on a suspended license.
Malik McDowell is now due in court later this month. The officer had minor scratches and nothing more. Malik McDowell has never played a NFL regular season game so far. Patriots are the current NFL champions.
He suffered an ATV accident on which he was released by Seattles in 2018. He is now a free agent this season. Patriots might want to boost their defense with his services.
