Former Baltimore Ravens running back Damien Berry, 25, is no stranger to breaking the law. While still a Raven, Berry was charged in Baltimore for failure to appear, driving with a suspended license, failure to pay child support and more. He was arrested in Florida on May 6 for bouncing a check for more than $100,000 and unlawful removal of property.
Dreadlocks and rhyming surnames aside, Sky Harry, 21, can relate to Berry on making poor financial decisions, too. Harry was arrested in Polk County on April 23 at 4:31 p.m. for the unauthorized use of a credit card totaling more than $10,000. His bail is set for the same amount.

Blotter — Des Moines
