January 8, 2015

Okay,so here’s the thing. If you’re doing 99 mph in a 65 zone and the cops pull you over (even if you’re just late trying to get to your kid’s parent-teacher conference at noon on a Wednesday) they arrest you for speeding. If they smell booze on your breath or otherwise think you’ve been drinking, they do a roadside sobriety test (you know, the one where you touch your nose…

Tubby Smith’s Son, an Assistant Coach at U of Minnesota, Arrested for DWI, Put on Leave – Saul Smith

After the phrase “when the truth comes out” (it never does) or next favorite sports/crime phrase has to be “we do not want to rush to judgment.” As in, “we know it LOOKS like the guy on our team did something really, really awful, it was caught on camera, and there are 100 witnesses, but let the legal process take its sweet time and hopefully your outrage will have faded…

Falcons Michael Turner Arrested for DUI after Monday Night Football

No BAC reported on this yet, but my main concern right now is whether I have Turner on one of my fantasy football teams. Here’s more from Yahoo Sports: Michael Turner hasn’t exactly had the best start to a season so far in 2012.  He was limited to just 11 carries in the opening week and while he followed that up with a 42 yard, one touchdown performance on Monday night…

Seahawks Marshawn Lynch Arrested for DUI in Oakland

July 17, 2012

First off, no, we don’t know what his exact BAC was, other than it was over the legal limit of .08%. (And likely not enought to qualify him for the World Famous BadJocks BAC Rankings.) How much over could impact what Lynch is charged with and the punishment handed down by the team and/or the league. Lynch, who played high school football in Oakland and is college ball at Cal…

Knick’s Jason Kidd Arrested for DUI After Charity Event

Justin Blackmon's mug shot pictures: 2010 and 2012
June 4, 2012

One thing you can say for top draft pick Justin Blackmon: he’s consistent. And if there’s one thing the NFL loves almost as much as money, it’s consistency. Take Blackmon’s drinking and driving for instance: In October 2010 he was arrested by Carrollton, Texas at 3:45 am going 90 in a 60 MPH zone on Interstate 35. At the time officers gave him a field sobriety test (no BAC that…

Vermont High School Soccer Coach Arrested for Fourth DUI in 25 Years – Thomas W. Schaefer

Apparently, South Burlington High School soccer coach Thomas W. Schaefer didn’t drink very often. But when he did–at an average about once every 6 years–he really threw them back and then drove. Schaefer is, or was, the long time boys and girls soccer coach at SBHS until last week when he was arrested for the fourth time for DUI. Most coaches barely survive their first drunk driving, much less a…
