An early issue with Biren Ealy…

July 27, 2009 | Nestor Aparicio

Well, it’s only been two hours since they signed this wide receiver kid Biren Ealy and the story about him allegedly exposing himself and urinating in public when the New Orleans Saints cut him three months ago has made the round on the social media circuit.

According to the story, “Authorities alleged that they were drunk, urinated in public and then exposed themselves when the women who called authorities came upon them.”

Meanwhile his agent, Donald “Chick” Foret defended Ealy and then-teammate and tight end Kolomona Kapanui with this statement:

“This is not an obscenity crime,” Foret said. “How many times have you had fraternity kids who are urinating in public? And this is a case where you had two guys together who went out at night. They came home, one of them wanted to change his pants and he was urinating in what he thought was a secluded area and a young lady walked up on him and he overreacted verbally.

“But never, ever, ever, did either of these young men threaten, intimidate or expose themselves to anyone.”

I’m sure Ozzie Newsome must’ve googled Biren Ealy but feel free to click the link and read the allegations for yourself.

Hey, there’s two sides to every story, right?

As one who has been inebriated and has urinated publicly on more than one occasion, I plead the fifth.

Welcome to Baltimore, Biren Ealy!
