Bills receiver Paul Hubbard arrested for DWI after vehicle hits officer

P. Hubbard

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.

    What is the next step past irrelevant?

    From a team standpoint, I could care less….but I feel bad for him. He’s screwed.

  3. greenbaypeckers says: Jul 24, 2011 6:58 PM

    This should get him back starting for the bungles

    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.

    So once again…he couldn’t achieve separation.

  6. deadeye says: Jul 24, 2011 7:01 PM

    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.

    He is so little known that he doesn’t even affect the Arrest meter. Much like 98 percent of Buffalo’s active roster.

    With the lockout almost behind us we can get back to normal football news: DWI arrests

    looks like he can hit people better than he can catch balls ……………………move him to D!

  11. rambo08 says: Jul 24, 2011 7:09 PM

    Who?

  12. thirstymofo says: Jul 24, 2011 7:20 PM

    Don’t you do it, Al….Don’t you fu@#’n do it!

  13. billsfan1 says: Jul 24, 2011 7:20 PM

    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

    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

  15. boltbacker says: Jul 24, 2011 7:24 PM

    I can’t believe the Bengals got rid of this guy!

  16. boltbacker says: Jul 24, 2011 7:25 PM

    NFL players now have less than 24 hours to do something stupid without getting in trouble. Good luck to all.

    Once a bengal always a bengal i guess.

    No, he started in the season finale against the Jets.

  20. bvolke says: Jul 24, 2011 7:32 PM

    Oh, great! Now the Bills won’t make the playoffs!

  21. stairwayto7 says: Jul 24, 2011 7:38 PM

    A Former Brown arrestted! Where is his 4 game suspension at?

  22. patsandsox says: Jul 24, 2011 7:40 PM

    A football player getting arrested?

    In other news the sun will set tonight.

  23. Deb says: Jul 24, 2011 7:40 PM

    At least Hines only hit a curb ;)

    Sorry … couldn’t resist. Glad the officer is okay.

    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.

    It looks like Hubbard is going back in the Cupboard…

  26. berniemadoffsides says: Jul 24, 2011 7:42 PM

    Sounds like he should switch to CB. He can’t catch catch and he hits well…

  27. ddjesus says: Jul 24, 2011 7:42 PM

    I think he’s the first Badger since Ikegwuonu to have any legal trouble like this.

  28. hobartbaker says: Jul 24, 2011 7:45 PM

    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.

    Who is keeping count Of The arrests?

  31. wicky888 says: Jul 24, 2011 7:51 PM

    Oh no, if he gets suspended 4 games you can really expect his stats to plummet…..

  32. hobartbaker says: Jul 24, 2011 7:54 PM

    “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.

    @hobartbaker: That’s quality stuff,man! HAHAHA!!!lol, and LMAO as well!

  34. thegonz13 says: Jul 24, 2011 8:25 PM

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

  35. jayniner says: Jul 24, 2011 8:43 PM

    Guess who’s going to the Raiders…

  36. gdeli says: Jul 24, 2011 8:44 PM

    another turd to add to the PFT police list. these guys never cease to amaze me. dangerous goon.

  37. stuartscottslefteye says: Jul 24, 2011 8:45 PM

    He’s a proud graduate of the Randy Moss Driving School.

    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…..

    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.
