Miami cornerback Will Allen recently said he’ll be in the starting lineup when the 2010 season begins.
He spent some time this morning in a place where “lineup” has a very different meaning.
Allen has been arrested for DUI in Miami, a league source has confirmed.
The information initially came from a tipster who says that Allen was driving a Ferrari (his pet name for it possibly is “Lockout Fund”).
As we hear it, Allen was arrested without being pulled over; he was waiting in traffic and making a ruckus and police who came to his vehicle determined Allen was possibly under the influence.
Allen is the second Dolphins player to be arrested this month. Defensive end Tony McDaniel was busted on Super Bowl Sunday for battery.
UPDATE: Reached for comment, Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene said, “We only recently learned about this and as a result will withhold any comment as we gather further information.” The Miami Herald has confirmed the arrest.
