With the 24th overall pick, the New England Patriots selected Miami safety Brandon Meriweather. Via Wikipedia:

Shooting incident

On July 21, 2006 Meriweather was involved in a shooting incident when teammate Willie Cooper was shot in the buttocks. Meriweather returned fire and shot at the unidentified shooter three times. Meriweather wasn’t charged due to the fact his gun was owned legally.

Miami FIU Brawl

During the infamous Miami-FIU brawl, Meriweather was clearly seen stomping repeatedly on several Florida International players on the ground. Meriweather was ultimately suspended by the ACC and Miami for his role in the brawl. It is believed that his actions during the brawl and the shooting incident may have caused his draft stock to slip.
