Charges won’t be pursued against Eric Wright

For some media outlets, the arrest draws the headline, and the resolution merits a footnote.

But since the news that Bucs cornerback Eric Wright joined the 2012 DUI parade (allegedly), it’s important to make it clear that the “allegedly” is now being removed.

“On July 1, my client Eric Wright was involved in a car accident in Los Angeles and was arrested for suspicion of DUI,” lawyer Jeremy I. Lessem said in a statement released Friday by the team.  “Today, I am pleased to announce that the Los Angeles County District Attorney has reviewed the facts and decided not to file any charges.  Therefore, no charges at all will be filed against Eric.  Eric is glad this is behind him and is eager to begin training camp at the end of the month.”

It’s good news for Wright, the Bucs, and the league.  Though it would be better if he’d never been arrested in the first place, it’s the best possible outcome.

    If this off season had a soundtrack, I think it would be the Drunken Sailor song from the old NFL films.
