Former NFL Player Bobby Sippio, who has seemingly bounced around every professional league with the exception of the Lingerie Football League, was arrested Thursday night after kidnapping, beating and threatening to kill his girlfriend’s brother.
The details from the Orlando Sentinel
Sippio, 31, picked up Sergio Moore, 27, from his apartment in Orlando about 11 p.m. Thursday, an Osceola sheriff’s report shows. Moore told deputies he thought he was going to help Sippio and his friend Santana Coats, 30, move furniture.
Instead, Sippio pulled a gun out of the center console, Moore told investigators. Moore tried to open the door and the windows, but they apparently had been locked on the driver’s side.
Sippio drove to a rural section of Osceola County off Poinciana Boulevard — Sippio is a former Osceola High School Kowboys quarterback — and forced Moore out of the car in a pasture off Oren Brown Road, a sheriff’s report states.
There, Coats and the 6-foot-4-inch, 215-pound Sippio punched and kicked Moore and Coats pointed the gun at him, he told deputies. Sippio told Moore that his sister could not save him, a sheriff’s report states.
After the beating, Coats and Sippio continued to terrorize Moore with the gun as they drove him home, according to deputies. Sippio and Moore are roommates, investigators said.
Moore sustained a broken nose, a swollen left hand and wrist and lacerations to the top of his head and cheek. Law officers interviewed him about 4:45 a.m. Friday at Orlando Regional Medical Center.
Sippio played the last two seasons with the Orlando Predators of the Arena League, spent some time in the NFL with the Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs and Detroit Lions. He is the second cousin of Chiefs star Dwayne Bowe.
