Havner's agents admit motorcycle accident, deny DUI arrest

In response to a report that Packers tight end Spencer Havner wrecked his motorcycle, suffered a broken scapula, and was arrested for DUI, Havner’s agents have issued a denial that Havner has been charged.

“Spencer Havner suffered only minor injuries this weekend in an
accident, including a broken scapula, but he should be fully recovered
in short order,” Mark Humenik, Athletes First’s general counsel, said in
a statement, according to Tom Pelissero of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

“Despite unfounded media reports to the contrary,
he has not been charged criminally with driving under the influence of
alcohol or any other substance.”

Last night, Liz Kellar of TheUnion.com reported on the crash.  Citing the California Highway Patrol, Kellar wrote that Havner was arrested at the hospital after he “was found to be under the influence.”

Here’s where it gets interesting — Pelissero reports that the agency “declined further comment” when asked if charges are still being contemplated or if Havner has been released from the hospital.

So it might just be a matter of timing or semantics.  If charges aren’t being contemplated, Humenik or someone else at Athletes First should simply say so.

    It is a shame that someone who is close to Aaron Rodgers is using Big Ben as a role model.

    Good luck with a speedy recovery Spencer. And Vikings fans please shut up, your players get in trouble all the time as well. They are people too after all. No one is perfect. Shame on him if the DUI charge is legit, that’s just plain dumb on his part.

    …regardless of the circumstances this is another fine example of the trials and tribulations that happens to so many people after being in WI. Alcoholism,drug abuse, recklessness,suicide,crime and obesity…….

    Jared Allen has three DUIs. Cedric Griffin has one. Look in the mirror, brainiac. Every team has its fair share of nimrods.

    Just goes to show there are dopes on every team. What I don’t get is how the hell a guy, not wearing a helmet, crashes his bike and only cracks his scapula? The ghost of Vince Lombardi must have been watching over the guy.
    On the DWI thing, often charges are pending while waiting for the blood test results. For his sake, lets hope they only find Red Bull.

    Weird, Jimmy and Bob are no where to be found. They must be perusing Vikings’ news. I suppose the Packers should relocate now because the streets would be safer without these criminals polluting the area, right boys?

    Yep, your “savior” fits all of those stigmas.
    Alcholism – He’s been drinking since 1st grade
    Drug Abuse – no explanation needed
    Recklessness – Became the first player in history to end three straight seasons with three different teams by throwing a come-from-ahead reckless INT
    Suicide – Favre’s ego fits this bill
    Crime – Raped the entire state of MN with one pass right into Tracy Porter’s chest
    Obesity – Well, let’s just say that when you live in MN where it’s winter 8 out of the 12 months you tend to pack on the lbs

    Congrats, you just took the lead for dumbest post of the year. I think your chances of winning are good.

    1) This happened Saturday before Havner was to fly back to Wisconsin for the off season program that began on Monday.
    2) This happened in a very rural area of California. The facts of the accident are not known.
    3) There are some important legal issues that have to be investigated. It is not known if this accident happened on a “public road” or private property and if the California Highway Patrol had jurisdiction.
    4) The matter is being investigated and Clifford Newell, Nevada County District Attorney, must evaluate the legally obtained evidence and act in the interests of justice in Nevada County. Let’s give him time to do his job.
    5) There are insufficient facts on which to form an opinion.

    ==================================
    1.) When it happened—–Who cares
    2.) Where it happened—-Who cares
    3.) Obviously it was on public property
    4.) No- You don’t give Vikings the benefit of the doubt.
    5.) Bullshit—- he was arrested
    6.) it took you all day to come up with this BS?
    7 STFU!
