NFL | Clarett ordered to undergo mental evaluation

The Associated Press reports former NFL RB Maurice Clarett was ordered Friday, Aug. 11, to have a mental health evaluation after a highway chase and violent struggle with police who caught him with four loaded guns. Judge David Fais delayed the trial set to begin Monday, Aug. 14, on previous charges accusing the player of holding up two people outside a bar on New Year's Day. "I clearly understand everything, and I don't know why we have to drag this thing out," said Clarett, who scoffed, smiled and rolled his head back when Fais ordered the evaluation. Clarett, who wrote a few notes to his attorneys with his hands cuffed, said he was ready to go to trial. Fais also revoked Clarett's $1.1 million bond on the charges, meaning Clarett figures to remain in jail until the new trial starts Sept. 18.
