Ex-NFLer Held in Siegfried & Roy Drive-By

Tue Nov 2, 9:18 PM ET


LAS VEGAS - A former Oakland Raiders kicker was in police custody Tuesday night in the September drive-by shooting at the home of entertainers Siegfried Fischbacher and Roy Horn, police said.



Cole Ford, 31, whose three-year NFL career ended in 1997 after he missed crucial kicks, was identified earlier by police as the owner of a white minivan from which shots were fired at the entertainers' compound.


No one was hurt, but police said shotgun pellets shattered windows and left a hole in a wall. Police have not said if the two were at home at the time.


Ford was captured without incident Tuesday afternoon at a copy store near the Las Vegas Strip after a woman tipped police that he was inside, police said.


He faces six felony warrant charges of discharging a firearm from a motor vehicle and two felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon.


The long-running Siegfried & Roy show was forced to close a year ago after Horn suffered a near-fatal tiger mauling during a performance

Whats up with the ex-football players lately? Cole Ford went crazy, then that Steeler that ran from the cops and crashed and died, and I just heard that Todd Marinovich is in trouble again,he's another ex-Raider. They're starting to make postmen look sane.

Maybe he was upset that they didn't put him in as a replacement for Roy

Entertainment? Try blowing brains out. Being a pirate. THAT'S the reputation of a Raider.
