Ex-Chiefs player serving two days in jail

Former Kansas City Chiefs player Tim Grunhard is serving two days in the Johnson County jail as part of a program to avoid prosecution on a felony perjury charge.

Grunhard was charged earlier this year with lying to get out of jury duty. He allegedly said he no longer was a resident of Johnson County but instead lived in Warsaw, Mo. Based on his statements, he was excused from jury duty in Johnson County District Court.

But prosecutors maintained that his primary residence was in Mission Hills.

This week, Grunhard and prosecutors reached a deal that would place the former center on diversion. If he completes the 12-month program, the perjury charge will not appear on his record.

Lying under oath is an offense that authorities take seriously, said Johnson County District Attorney Paul Morrison.

Records showed that Grunhard was booked into the jail at 9:17 a.m. Tuesday and was to be held for 48 hours, which Morrison said was typical “shock time” in such cases.

Grunhard, 36, retired from the Chiefs in 2001 after an 11-year career. He co-hosts a local radio sports talk show.

Grunhard's attorney, Steve Sakoulas, could not be reached Wednesday for comment.

It always saddens me when someone I respected so much as a player, is such a turd off the field.

Too bad he wasn't lying about sex, then it wouldn't have been perjury.
Especially if the sex wasn't sex, but rather a BJ in which he didn't make any contact with the felatrix other than her lips.

Wasn't Clinton great?

Too bad there's a controlling legal authority here too. Grunny should have been drinking more iced tea.

You want a easy way to get out of jury duty?

just tell them you would like to serve because you can spot a guilty person a mile away.

Just make sure that you aren't perjuring yourself when you say that.

Contempt of court is a bitch.

WTF? Did Boyce get whacked in the head with a baseball bat or something? Lately all he does is make nonsensical off topic posts and attach a pic of W.

Maybe his mentally challenged little brother found the slip of paper he had his password written on.
