    "Bookem Dano" was the trademark slogan of a long running and popular television series,Hawaii Five-0, that ran from 1968-1980, It chronicled the lives of Hawaii detectives and its police chief played by Jack Lord.

    The famous phrase by Lord after they got the bad guy was, "Bookem Dano." Fast forward to today and that could be the trademark slogan on many campuses for college football players.

    Cases in point:

    * University of Alabama football player Jeremy Elder was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree robbery according to The Tuscaloosa News. Elder, 19, was still being held at the Tuscaloosa County Jail on $120,000 bail. He was arrested by the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Department, with a University of Alabama Police Department investigator.

    * Former Texas running back Ramonce Taylor, who scored 15 touchdowns in the Longhorns' 2005 national championship season, is serving five months in jail for violating probation.

    * South Carolina receiver Dion Lecorn was recently arrested at an apartment complex and charged with marijuana possession. The 19-year-old freshman was released on his own recognizance after spending the night in jail.

    * Penn State safety Anthony Scirrotto was sentenced to a year probation after pleading guilty this month to a reduced charge for his role in an off-campus fight. Scirrotto must serve 25 days of community service and pay a $500 fine after his plea to a misdemeanor count of defiant trespass, defense attorney Ron McGlaughlin said.

    * Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer dismissed defensive back Antonio Wardlow and reserve linebacker Dorian Davis for violations of team rules. It was not immediately known why Wardlow was dismissed.
