Former Dolphin Tyrell Johnson Arrested for Peeing in Public on Miami Beach

Tyrell Johnson was only on the Dolphin's preseason roster for a couple of months before the 2012 season, but apparently he liked Miami so much he still sticks around here to pee on the street.

Johnson was arrested this weekend on Miami Beach for doing just that.

According to CBS Miami, police officers spotted Johnson draining his bladder near Ninth Street and Ocean Court. They approached him but Johnson refused cooperate when officers asked him to put his hands on a wall, and pulled away from officers after they attempted to take him into custody.

Johnson was arrested and charged with urinating in public and resisting arrest without violence.

Johnson, the son of former NBA player Alvin Robertson, played for four seasons for the Minnesota Vikings before getting injured. The safety more recently popped back up on Miami, and more recently, Detroit's pre-season rosters but got cut each time.

Johnson had been arrested in 2011 on suspicion of DWI in Minnesota.
