Will he even miss a game because of this? I mean, Donte Stallworth ran over someone while driving his car under the influence and only missed a year, right? So, unless you actually kill someone, or are a Saint, you are pretty much free to do whatever you want...

Athletes get arrested for DUI almost every week these days so how is this a tarnishing image?

I'm beginning to think its a resume enhancement.

Its becoming a "my thugs are better than your thugs" league. And the NFL network lineups aren't much better.

I think the bar is set at the "slap yo mamma with yo New Era" stratus. DUI's are so passe..

According to the article he was arrested, condone it or not the guy landed in jail. Guess he won't be driving the Play 60 Bus next time.
Also glad to see the Trolls haven't given up on us yet!
