Chambers arrested

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chris Chambers was arrested early Saturday on charges of driving while impaired and speeding. He was arrested by Charlotte-Mecklenburg police around 2:30 a.m., several miles south of downtown, said police Capt. Lisa Goelz. He faces charges of driving while impaired, speeding, and reckless driving, she said. He was later released on a $1,750 bond, according to Goelz.

The way star players in the NFL are getting arrested and suspended, there won't be much of a league anymore. At this rate, the only players eligible to start the season will be coming from the Brooklyn Jewish football league. Hey, I'm not complaining, it will still be better ball than the CFL.

He got pulled less than 2 miles from my house. He apparently owns a lake house here. He declined a breathalyzer on site so they took him to the precinct. Reports are that he then blew .06, which is below the .08 limit

But I am sure he had some time to sobre up on the drive there.
And Chris, watch your kids if you have that drunk driving around there.

Oh he obviously "recovered" during the delay. The arresting officer described him as slurring his speech and acting "drowsy". The on site refusal is a time honored tactic to damage a potential DUI prosecution
