Eagles' Owen Schmitt accused of driving on suspended license

UPDATE: We’ve heard from Schmitt’s camp that the Philadelphia Inquirer story was incorrect, and that this report actually stems from Schmitt getting pulled over on October 5, 2009 — not 2010. According to Schmitt’s camp, Schmitt has been driving on a valid license for more than a year and only has a procedural issue that his attorney is taking care of in Seattle.

Eagles fullback Owen Schmitt is in trouble again after he was pulled over on October 5.

Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Schmitt waived an arraignment after he was charged for driving with a suspended license in Seattle.

Schmitt has a pretrial date for November 16 and will have to go to court unless a judge waives his appearance.

Schmitt was arrested in June of 2009 on suspicion of drunken driving. He later pleaded guilty to reckless driving.

    sounds like a paperwork issue. If he was caught driving while suspended for DUI than he’d have more to worry about than just a trial date. He probably can plea down to driving without a license if his license is good again.

    He probably thinks he has to do this to fit in. He’s right.

    Once your in the revolving door of the system, doing stupid stuff like driving without a permit just prolongs it, you go round and round. Knucklehead.

    Smith, don’t you cringe when you realize this is what you do for a living? He’s “in trouble again?” He got a goddamn ticket for driving on a suspended license. That’s not trouble. But while you’re at it, can we get a list of everyone in Washington who got a parking/traffic ticket? We’ll wait…
    You’re a piece of crap, Smith.

    Yes, and another proud Fairfax HS alum! And just when I thought Owen would join Bill Pulsipher and Brian Buchanan in the FHS Ring of Fame.

    Those are some serious charges…he’ll probably serve a few years for that!
    Nothing else to report on today I assume, MDS?

    Meh. This is tantamount to a speeding ticket. I had a suspended license for NINE YEARS because I was 2 days late paying a ticket and got pulled over for 62mph in a 55mph zone on the 2nd day after it was due. That means my license was suspended, 1 more year of suspension. No DUI, no nothing. Just 62 in a 55.
    Then, being that its simply impossible to not drive and maintain a full time job in most parts of the country, I had to keep driving. Got nailed for a license plate light being out, another year, and then 2 years later when I was supposed to get my license back, I call up the DMV, and they say ‘Oh, we never received your paperwork for surrendering your license, we never started giving you credit for serving your suspension’. So I had to essentially go ANOTHER 3 years without a license.
    Thats not being a criminal or a bad person, its just a lot of shitty luck on my part. Now, Schmitt I believe, had a DUI, so that makes things a little different in my book, but if he’s been out of trouble, and its been over a year since his DUI (almost 2 I believe), he SHOULD have his license back. So yeah, it sounds like the DMV screwed up and he’s gotta take it on the chin like I did when the DMV screwed me.
