A professional athlete has been avoiding three felony charges for almost one year. However, he was finally detained at his home in Florida and transported to California for arraignment. Nawa Koa Misi, a linebacker for the Miami Dolphins, faces three felony charges for an incident which took place in April 2011. At that time, Misi reportedly got into an altercation with a man in Isla Vista. He went to the man's apartment, punched through his front door and then hit him in the face. Misi's original arraignment was scheduled for last year but he never appeared. Local authorities were able to obtain an
arrest warrant for the charges of residential
burglary, battery with serious injury and dissuading a witness, which led to his arrest.
It is uncertain why the 25-year-old athlete was charged with dissuading a witness. However, some say that he grabbed a woman's cell phone and then threw it down on the ground either before or after she called 911 and that may be the reason behind that charge.
