New Orleans Saints wide receiver Joe Morgan was arrested in Jefferson Parish early Saturday morning for allegedly driving while intoxicated. State Police booked Morgan, 25, with DWI and driving with no license, according to arrest reports.

A trooper happened upon Morgan sometime around midnight Saturday, asleep behind the wheel of his vehicle on the Earhart Expressway near Causeway Boulevard in Jefferson, the arrest report said. The trooper woke Morgan and had him step out of the vehicle.

But the trooper noticed Morgan seemed intoxicated, according to the report. He was swaying on his feet, smelled of alcohol and had unsteady balance and bloodshot eyes, the report said.

After Morgan performed poorly on a field sobriety test, the trooper arrested him and took him the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center in Gretna. Morgan's blood alcohol content registered 0.218 percent, more than twice the 0.08-percent legal limit, the arrest report said.

A records check revealed that Morgan did not have a valid driver's license, the report said. Morgan was booked Saturday at the Gretna jail. He was released the same day on a $1,150 bond.

Re: Joe Morgan arrested for DUI



Dammit!!!

As if our WR corps wasn't weak enough already.... HAY-Zeus CHRISTO man!

You had all offseason to do this but you wait for now... NOW!!??

We need another veteran WR, plain and simple. I don't care if Deion Branch is slow, he can help keep these young guys FOCUSED.

Is Laurent Robinson healthy yet???

Re: Joe Morgan arrested for DUI

So get this; a trooper stumbles upon Morgan, who was asleep at the wheel!!???!!

WITHOUT a valid driver's license....

0.281 blood alcohol - TWICE the legal limit

I swear, I'm starting a transportation service strictly for NFL players...


Hey, look at me, I'm an idiot!

No choice but to now. We could be sans Joe Morgan for the first four games.

I think the league has a 2 strike policy. But if this is his 2nd strike, he could be out 4.

Payton may very well make an example of him and cut him immediately. I wouldn't blame him.
