It never fails.
Whenever I notice that the “days without an arrest meter” is starting to climb into double digits, it gets reset to zero.
I noticed earlier today that 13 days had passed since the last arrest of an NFL player. Little did I know that the next arrest already had occurred.
Redskins cornerback Byron Westbrook was busted early Friday on suspicion of drunk driving charges. Per NBCWashington.com, the brother of Eagles running back Brian Westbrook was pulled over shortly before 2:00 a.m. ET, after switching lanes several times.
He failed “several” field sobriety tests, and he refused to submit to a breath test.
Per the report, Wesbrook also has been charged with negligent driving and failure to drive right of center.
It’s the second arrest of a Redskins player since Mike Shanahan became the team’s head coach. In Denver, Shanahan admittedly used polygraph testing on players who found themselves on the wrong side of the law.
