Baltimore Ravens linebacker Sergio Kindle, a 2010 draft pick who has not played at all because of an off-field injury, has been arrested for drunk driving.

The Baltimore Sun reports that Kindle was arrested at was pulled over at 4:09 a.m.today after an officer observed his vehicle weaving. In addition to the drunk driving charge he was given tickets for speeding and failure to obey traffic control devices. He was released after posting $10,000 bond.

“I just want to apologize to the organization, because I don’t want to bring a negative light to the team,” Kindle told the Baltimore Sun. “It was my mistake. I can’t take it back now. I don’t know what’s going to happen from here.”

Kindle suffered a skull fracture when he fell down a stairwell at a friend’s home a few days before the start of training camp. He still has not been cleared to return to football and said he doesn’t know if he’ll be able to play in 2011.

    Do all the draft experts still think he was a steal at the top of the 2nd round?

    In a surprising revelation, Kindle now says that shortly before falling down the stairs at his friend’s house, he now recalls having been tripped by Jets Strength Coach, Sal Alosi.

    This is why your dumba$$ fell down the steps! Ozzie you made a mistake with this draft pick….

    $10,000 bond for a DUI? That’s a bit… excessive, no?

    Bonehead of the week! We have a tie, Sergio Kindle & Terrell Suggs. Way to go !

  6. Kaz says: Dec 26, 2010 6:54 PM

    Can we finally call him a bust? The great Wizzard of Oz makes mistakes too. Clearly.

    The guy that the ‘experts’ wanted the Patriots to draft – in the first round.

  8. hobartbaker says: Dec 26, 2010 7:06 PM

    After his incident during the off season, Sergio vowed never to walk after he had a few too many drinks.

    What a steal!

    As a Ravens fan, a shame to see Kindle engage in these actions.. I dont feel sorry for him though.. Ozzie and co. took a gamble, and made a rare mistake. Harbaugh won’t let him see the light of day when it comes to playing time, thats if, he even returns next season.

    Sure, he has yet to play and likely will not play until at least the 2012 season. But, you can’t be too harsh on Oz for a miss on a mid to lower second round pick especially considering Kindle was only paid a one-year deal by Baltimore.

    One of the three linebackers you picked up cleared the waivers and the other two don’t see the field.

    Who the heck is Sergio Kindle…?

  15. richm2256 says: Dec 26, 2010 7:41 PM

    Didn’t he have a DUI in college, also?

  16. daytonaken says: Dec 26, 2010 7:55 PM

    Who in their right mind believes Kindle fell down the stairs while sleepwalking. C’mon man!

  17. cletusvandam says: Dec 26, 2010 8:00 PM

    When are we going he hear about the sleeping disorder he has that caused him to drive drunk. What a dirtball.

  18. steelers6pack says: Dec 26, 2010 8:08 PM

    Yet another overrated Texas player!

  19. rwjk says: Dec 26, 2010 8:18 PM

    I can’t believe Ozzie Newsome tripped Kindle when he was walking down the stairs at his house that one night. And then last night feeding him all that egg nog at his Christmas party and telling him to drive home. Let’s just blame Ozzie for this one. Seriously though, are you people that dumb? We all know Ozzie is a genius, but he isn’t a damn psychic

  20. sarahpalinhater says: Dec 26, 2010 8:26 PM

    What he did WAS Idiotic for sure. He could have killed some Innocent person. But lets be clear on something, if you consider a guy who was maybe college footballs BEST Defensive player his final year at Texas a Bust…BEFORE he has ever even stepped on to a NFL field,,then you all my friends are even BIGGER Idiots then Sergio is!!

  21. knowerofallthings says: Dec 26, 2010 8:31 PM

    he will never wear a Raven jersey – unless he buys one. Hope those drinks were worth it alchy

  22. sarahpalinhater says: Dec 26, 2010 8:44 PM

    So Sergio gets a DUI,,and he will never wear a Raven Uniform ? But Ray-Ray helps assist in a Murder,,,and he’s okay ? ( LOL @ U )

  23. FinFan68 says: Dec 26, 2010 8:47 PM

    This is a textbook example of how to screw up a potential NFL career. The + side is that the Ravens didn’t give him a lot of money. He likely got drunk before his fall down the steps and he got drunk and went for a drive. He has zero accountability like many of the “elite” athletes. I am quite thankful the dolphins didn’t draft him because it is looking more and more like he won’t make it

  24. siggtacular says: Dec 26, 2010 8:55 PM

    It really is a shame. Kindle was just the right kind of pass rusher the Ravens needed opposite three time pro bowler T-Sizzle. As any G.M., Ozzie has big hits and big misses.. and Kindle was unfotunately of the latter category. Hopefully Terrence Cody will prove his worth in 2011.

  25. reedhof20 says: Dec 26, 2010 9:15 PM

    Like we need him – we just keep on keepin’ on. Hey Cleveland – we didn’t need him today did we?

  26. shageman13 says: Dec 26, 2010 9:17 PM

    A fractured skull can’t be predicted. Narcolepsy, alcoholism, bad knees, and not even being a good pass rusher can.

  27. geauxformore says: Dec 26, 2010 9:20 PM

    I didn’t know you can call a guy a bust when he hasnt played a down in the NFL. Dumb yes but not a bust we dont know what type of player he can be.

  28. myspaceyourface says: Dec 26, 2010 9:25 PM

    I knew he was drunk when he fell down a flight of stairs.

    maneuvered the turn and fell down another flights of stairs.

    That sleeping disorder mixed with alcohol is a killer.

  29. reedhof20 says: Dec 26, 2010 9:26 PM

    @sarahpalinhater
    You are an embarrassment to those of us that are educated. Like I need to explain this, but 52 was NEVER convicted. He will never wear a a uniform because he is demonstrating a pattern. Ray was involved…and I use that word loosely because who really knows…in one criminal act. Do you think murderers and lifetime criminals (like you make 52 out as) murder once and then never get in any trouble ever again? Either he did it and has accomplished one hell of a transformation,…or…he DIDN’T do it…Duh

  30. scrapdawg12 says: Dec 26, 2010 9:31 PM

    Well it appears he will never play for the Ravens or another team. I heard Mcdonalds is hiring in your area sergio

  31. thereisalwaysnextyear says: Dec 26, 2010 9:38 PM

    Drinking problem? I wonder if he fell down the stairs because he was, you know, DRUNK?

  32. bryjord says: Dec 26, 2010 11:24 PM

    Lol so Ravens fans bash Kindle and love that Stallworth brings them speed. I mean atleast they are the only NFL team with 2 murderers!

  33. tiffpats4eva says: Dec 26, 2010 11:42 PM

    The Ravens are stacked with brainiacs.

  34. oldcracker says: Dec 27, 2010 12:46 AM

    Braylon Edwards wasn’t with him, was he? Maybe Donte Stallworth can be Sergio’s mentor now.

    Meet you Baltimore Ravens Ed Block Courage award winner for 2011.

  36. maximus929 says: Dec 27, 2010 2:37 AM

    When he gets on the field, he’ll still be a star. Love all the “experts” who know everything on this blog.

  37. voodoochild47 says: Dec 27, 2010 6:33 AM

    C’MON MAN!!!! Too bad they don’t have such a thing as the TONY MANDARICH BUST OF THE YEAR award cause this dude would be this year’s recipient!

  38. Jack Burton says: Dec 27, 2010 8:13 AM

    Hilarious, this guy is killing his own career instead going the way of Vernon Ghoulston.

  39. edgarpoe2 says: Dec 27, 2010 11:00 AM

    It was not a bad pick. If he didn’t fall down the steps and injure himself, he’d be playing.

    Knowing what we know now, would the Ravens have picked someone else? Of course they would. But no one has crystal balls last time I checked. It was a fluke injury.

    ‘Tis not really a bust, as he never made it on the field due to the non-football related injury. Just really bad luck. No one knows what could have been.

  40. shageman13 says: Dec 27, 2010 12:05 PM

    When he gets on the field? How about IF he gets on the field. And even then, he’s not that good of a player. He’s more of a Jarrett Johnson than a Terrell Suggs.

  41. steelerhater says: Feb 11, 2011 9:39 PM

    Kindle is a bust, not worthy of being on the team, as to the numbnutz who makes comments about 2 murderers on the team, Here it comes…at least we don’t have a rapist on our team. Great job in the super bowl. Wait till next year! Big Ben will be wearing his face shield.
