Christina Vega of the Miami Herald reported that he was indeed in custody as of 2:00 p.m. ET in lieu of $1,000 bail. Jeff Darlington of the Herald has since posted the link to the Miami-Dade jail at his Twitter page, which shows that Allen has not been released as of 3:00 p.m. ET.
Since coming up with $1,000 surely isn’t an issue, it could be that the police have decided not to let Allen go until he has dried out and/or wakes up.
The Dolphins have issued the following statement: “We only recently learned about this and as a result will withhold any comment as we gather more information.”
Allen will be subject to punishment under the substance abuse policy, if he is convicted or pleads guilty to the charge.
