Jets Player Arrested On DUI Charges

September 21, 2010

New York (ChattahBox Sports News) – NY Jets player Braylon Edwards was arrested in Manhattan this morning for driver under the influence, after he was found to be twice over the legal limit for the state.

Edwards was originally pulled over because of ‘excessively tinted windows’, and when the officer approached him there were signs that he was inebriated. He asked him to take a breathalyzer, and found that his blood-alcohol level was at 0.16, or double the legal amount for operating a vehicle.

The NY Jets website had a statement shortly after about the incident, saying they were “very disappointed” in his behavior, and that they are seeking advice on how to properly punish him in the League for the lapse.

They also pointed out that there is a driver program available to all players, with trained security, many former police officers, who are a call away if a way home is needed. Also, with the cash that Edwards brings in, you would think he could afford a cab home.

    This is just further evidence that it makes no difference if you are wealth or broke, alcohol abuse turns you into a non-thinking, irresponsible person that will cause himself and others trouble… in this case, the Jets.

    Good treatment takes 4 to 6 months and these athletes won’t take the time to get treatment that gets a 75% success. Instead they go to 30-day programs and enter the 3-5% challenge. I wouldn’t bet on Edwards to stay alcohol and drug free the rest of this season.
