2 Saints accused of lewd conduct
Two New Orleans Saints players are in jail after they were booked on charges of obscenity, disturbing the peace by being drunk in public, and lewd conduct by urinating in public and exposing themselves early Sunday morning, said Col. John Fortunato, a spokesman for the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office.


Biren Ealy, 24, and Kolomona Kapanui, 25, were arrested just before 1 a.m. at an apartment complex in Elmwood. Both men are on the Saints' 80-man roster, but neither has played in a game with the New Orleans team.

Two women pulled up to the Palmetto Creek apartments in the 5100 block of Citrus Boulevard when the two men were urinating in the parking lot, Fortunato said. One of the women told them to stop.

At that point, Ealy allegedly turned around and exposed himself to the woman and started making lewd comments, Fortunato said. Kapanui also turned around, faced the woman driving the car, and started to fondle himself while making comments as well, Fortunato said.

The women yelled for help and called 911.

Ealy and Kapanui -- a wide receiver and tight end, respectively -- were taken to the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center. They are each being held on $4,250 bond, Fortunato said.

"We are aware of the situation," Saints spokesman Greg Bensel said in an e-mail. "Our security department is working with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office on this matter. We will have no further comment."

Ealy and Kapanui are being represented by attorney Donald "Chick" Foret. Foret, who does not work for the Saints but has previously represented team members, said the Saints' security chief recommended him to the two players.

Foret was out of town Sunday and said he only had cursory information about the incident, but he was hoping to have bond posted by the night's end.

"My goal for today is to have them released and start working on the case tomorrow (Monday)," Foret said.

Ealy, who attended the University of Houston, was picked up by the Saints in January after spending two years with the Tennessee Titans, mostly on the practice squad. He appeared in four Titans games, with one reception for six yards in his career.

Kapanui, who graduated from West Texas A&M after playing two years at the University of Southern California, was signed to the Saints' practice squad last season in late November but did not appear in a game.

He was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Cleveland Browns last year but was released after the preseason.
