Bills receiver Paul Hubbard arrested for DWI after vehicle hits officer

Bills wide receiver Paul Hubbard was arrested for driving while intoxicated on Sunday morning, according to Doug Sampson of Your News Now in Buffalo.

Don’t feel too bad if you aren’t familiar with Hubbard’s NFL work. A sixth-round pick of the Browns in 2008, he has one career catch in two games.

(He started last season in Cincinnati, before shuffling between the Bills practice squad and active roster.)

Hubbard was arrested after his vehicle reportedly hit a Buffalo police officer.  The officer was treated at the hospital and released.

  1. Good thing for him it happened before the CBA was signed. Despite Goodell’s bluster, he has no authority to punish somebody for anything that happened during this lockout.

  2. Now technically, this situation cannot be addressed by Goodell because there is no official NFLPA union at this time. However, I’m a little shocked that NFL players would be flaunting the law so close to the point in time where Goodell could punish them. My guess that Hubbard had assurances from his player rep that a vote would happen Monday, at the earliest, and that it was safe to go on one last over night drunk.

  4. I’d be shocked if he can’t be punished because he is still an employee of the league….although playing for us is punishment enough

  5. Little Paul Hubbard had gin in the cupboard during the football lockout
    Then one night, to his friends’ delight, he drank it all ’til it ran out
    He hopped in his car, and drove real far
    Until the light turned red
    He meant to stop, but ran into a cop
    He won’t play football, it’s jail instead

    Lot of hate for the guy that actually read the article.

    He does play for the Bills not the Bengals. This loser barely made it off anyone’s practice squad.

    It’s only a headline because he ran into a cop.

    People still think Bengals jokes are funny. That’s sad. It’s like making fun of a challenged person.

  7. Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard
    to answer her baby on the phone
    The news was not good, he had a cop on his hood,
    and will be given two years to atone.

  8. “Some crazy mofo standing inna middle of the intersection wearing an orange vest, blowing on a whistle, and waving his arms. I thought it was a carjacking.

  9. Small wonder players are reluctant to sign a new CBA… it takes away the possibility to screw up without getting punished for it!

  10. “I’m just driving along chillin’, when alla sudden I hear this cop screaming at me. And he’s right up in my grill.”.

  11. Its my understanding all teams provide services to the players to drive to just about anywhere they want. They even provide security. All at no cost to the players!!!!

    So whenever I see this, I have nothing but contempt for the player. These incidents are so far past stupid the word hasn’t been invented yet. There is absolutely no reason for this situation to ever occur!!

    There should be some kind of very, very stiff penalty, even first offenders as there is no excuse for it whatsoever.

    (I dont know if this is available during all thats going on, but I would think even the poorest NFL player can afford a cab ride.)

    …stepping down from my soapbox…..

  13. In his defense, realize that about six months out of the year, the ONLY thing to do in Buffalo is drink. And the best reason to drink is because you’re stuck in Buffalo for goodness sake.
