College Football's Career Passing Yards Leader Arrested for Allegedly Throwing Video Camera On Roof

There has to be more to the story than that. And there is!

Timmy Chang, former star quarterback at the University of Hawaii and recently released professional journeyman, was arrested Thursday in Mililani, Hawaii, and is being investigated for robbery for his role in a brawl that took place back on June 1st. A 23-year-old woman told police she was filming the melee when Chang, 27, approached her and told her to stop. A struggle ensued, he grabbed her camera and then "threw it on the roof of a nearby building".

Chang, soon to be a.k.a. "Uncle Rico" or "Chris Finch", was let go by the CFL's Winnipeg Blue Bombers back in February, after having spent time in the NFL with the Cardinals, Lions and Eagles. He had a stellar college career with the Warriors, where he was a Heisman Trophy candidate (in 2003) and threw for an NCAA-record 17,072 passing yards, presumably all with footballs.
