How can a person be arrested for Driving While Intoxicated if he wasn't actually driving? He may have just decided to sleep it off in his car. Let's assume the best - Joe Morgan has not had any character issues until now.

Its just a DUI. He shouldn't miss any playing time and Payton and co. will light a fire under his ass. Relax.

Just a DUI?

What about the miles he drove to get to that point at TWICE the legal limit?

This could have been a story about Joe Morgan being arrested for vehicular manslaughter - or worse.

Sorry bro, DUI's aren't to be shrugged off...

If you are drunk behind the wheel sleeping and the keys are in the ignition, on the floor, on the seat, that constitutes a DUI. Even if you are in the parking lot. Being found on the Expressway means he got there some how. He is not getting out of this.

He will lose from a game check to $50k for a fist offense.

Yea but it wasn't that story. Im not making light of a DUI, but its not like he raped kids. He won't miss any football time, and as long as this is a wake up call and he can walk a straight path I don't see any reason to panic. Its nice to have players that are squeaky clean, but Ill take a Ray Lewis any day if he produces.

I really hate seeing this.

I like Joe Morgan but I have a feeling Payton is going to come down hard on him for this.

My understanding was that most teams already have a system in place where someone will pick you up for free, no questions asked.
