49ers guard Daniel Kilgore arrested for public intoxication

A 49ers offensive lineman went home and drowned his sorrows, but ended up with more problems.

According to Nick Shepherd of the Kingsport Times-News, 49ers guard Daniel Kilgore was arrested for public intoxication last weekend near his Tennessee home.

The incident happened in the early morning hours of Jan. 26. According to the police report, two males were staggering down the sidewalk, with red eyes and dilated pupils. After checking their IDs, they were arrested “for their safety and the welfare of the public.”

Kilgore was a fifth-round pick in 2011 from Appalachian State, and has developed into a valuable reserve. He played each game the last two seasons, but hasn’t started an NFL game yet.

    Arrested “for their safety and the welfare of the public.”

    What? If this was really a safety thing, the officer could have had them call a cab. Or go above and beyond his duty like some officers do and offer them a ride home.

    I mean really…they weren’t driving…they were walking on the sidewalk.

    Who cares. Just a player on one of the other 30 teams watching the Superbowl from home. Sober up fella. Kaep is going to throw one foot farther next season…quit kissing his bicep…own up to his own mistakes…close his Twitter account…be a real leader for his team and…and…and…ah, who am I kidding! Drink up, buddy!

    He does not look as excited to have his picture taken as Bieber was.

    Should have taken his car !

    Kudos to Daniel for not driving.

    aaaawwwwWWahhhhhhhh, Once it touches your lips, It’s just SO GOOD, so good

  9. sonoco says: Jan 31, 2014 12:34 PM

    Can’t even walk down the street drunk anymore. Sheesh. At least he wasn’t driving.

  10. backdapack4evr says: Jan 31, 2014 12:35 PM

    Now there’s a big surprise!!
    Was he with coach Jim???
    Il bet he whined the whole time!!

  11. chawk12thman says: Jan 31, 2014 12:35 PM

    This is crazy……the two men, one of them Kilgore, were walking down the sidewalk and the cop determined they needed to be arrested. He wasn’t doing anything illegal other than being drunk and walking in public. This doesn’t promote the concept where we want folks to walk and not drive under the influence.

    Wish he hadn’t arrested, but advised them they needed to catch a cab or friend to get them home.

  12. cubsin2049 says: Jan 31, 2014 12:38 PM

    The 49ers will also have an excuse for this…..
    “If only his glass wasn’t so full of beer, he wouldn’t have gotten so drunk”
    “If only the bartender would have stopped serving him drinks, this wouldn’t have happened”
    “If only that pass was a few inches higher…” Oh wait, that’s a different incident with a different excuse.

  13. southpaw79 says: Jan 31, 2014 12:41 PM

    Caught walking drunk, he will be punished immediately. Lynch is on what, year two with out punishment for his latest DUI?

  14. deepseabreeze says: Jan 31, 2014 12:43 PM

    It’s one thing if they’re being disorderly but you’ve got to be kidding me. they were WALKING on a sidewalk. Ridiculous.

  15. cmoney4949 says: Jan 31, 2014 12:44 PM

    He wasn’t drinking and driving. Not a big deal. I doubt the Commish will even do anything.

  16. trytobereasonable says: Jan 31, 2014 12:45 PM

  17. seatownballers says: Jan 31, 2014 12:45 PM

    All the Niners players have been on a 2 week binge. Kaep has posted a pic of himself doing the super man on his Facebook. Lol
    Broncos players gonna ask you guys to pass the bottle soon enough

  18. hawksforever says: Jan 31, 2014 12:49 PM

    Proof that Hairball knows how to run a franchise “right.” LOL!!

  19. hawksforever says: Jan 31, 2014 12:51 PM

    Reports says he was arrested staggering down the sidewalk towards his car.

  20. tacasey says: Jan 31, 2014 12:53 PM

    If he had driven his own vehicle this incident would not have happened. People just don’t think sometimes.

    ha ha ha ha ha …loser

  22. hrmlss says: Jan 31, 2014 12:56 PM

    I wouldn’t reset the arrest counter for this one….

    Above Reproach.

  24. sharks123 says: Jan 31, 2014 12:59 PM

    Kap did take ownership. You know the part where he said he cost the team the game. Twitter and kissing biceps is window dressing and irrelevant. Glad to see Kilgore trying to grab the starting center job by the horns.

  25. phx9erfan says: Jan 31, 2014 1:02 PM

    You Seahawks fans are a funny bunch. I didn’t read that he was pissing on the side of a building or driving his car and he didn’t use the excuse that someone tampered with the collection cup or I wasn’t employed by them at the time so it shouldn’t count. He was arrested for walking home drunk. Like no one here hasn’t done that before. So what he was drinking his pain away from the lose. The Seahawks have been doing that for years!

  26. ttommytom says: Jan 31, 2014 1:03 PM

    I didn’t even know this was still illegal in some states and I’m a retired cop.

    Arrest the bartender then for aiding and abetting?

    Beyond stupid.

    Arrested for walking under the influence. Now he will have to endure the wrath of MADW.

  28. yooperman says: Jan 31, 2014 1:10 PM

    The damn police should have given him a ride home. Thanks for not driving.

  29. pilot2011 says: Jan 31, 2014 1:15 PM

    Lets go Mountaineers!

  30. thegreatgabbert says: Jan 31, 2014 1:16 PM

    The 300 pound Kilgore was staggering erratically causing several pedestrians to swerve off the sidewalk and resulting in a multi pedestrian pileup.

  31. golfore says: Jan 31, 2014 1:18 PM

    He should of called his buddy Aldon Smith for a ride.

  33. wishingtonredslur says: Jan 31, 2014 1:19 PM

    Wow, walking home drunk is illegal? Who brought the designated legs?

  34. purpleguy says: Jan 31, 2014 1:21 PM

    Big deal, but I still can’t help but wonder how much an NFL O-lineman actually has to drink to be hammered enough to get busted for public intoxication.

  35. raiderjefe says: Jan 31, 2014 1:22 PM

    “Who’s got it better than us??” hahahaha.

    all of you people defending him because he wasnt driving, is the same as saying he wasnt murdering anyone. Those werent the charges. Drunk in public was. He broke the law, and got arrested. Man up and take it.

    I heard he was quoted as saying “I bet I can throw a football over that mountain. If coach woulda put me in in the 4th quarter, we coulda won state” HAHA suckas!

  36. russellwilsonismymvp says: Jan 31, 2014 1:23 PM

    Kaep plays drunk vs the Seahawks too. What’s the big deal?

  37. jayniner says: Jan 31, 2014 1:27 PM

    Great comments!


  38. noahbird says: Jan 31, 2014 1:28 PM

    You can’t even walk home drunk. If your not hurting anybody or their property let them shuffle home.

  39. hawksforever says: Jan 31, 2014 1:32 PM

    Man the pain and butthurt must be deep for the whiners to still be drinking to the point of not being able to walk, and this is after almost two weeks!

    Along with Colon Kraperdick crying and throwing a tantrum like a little snot-nosed brat, just like his loser coach!

    LOL! Love it!

  40. bennyb82 says: Jan 31, 2014 1:35 PM

    This law is probably intended to keep drunk people out of public…but it probably just makes it more likely that they will drive next time.

    SO many seahawk fans posting – people – your team is in the SUPER BOWL… why don’t you lay off and enjoy the moment?

    – Niner fan

  43. reecan says: Jan 31, 2014 1:51 PM

    He was probably at a Bar and people were toasting for Denver to Beat Seattle.. Hell I’ll drink to that more than once myself.

  44. 1phd says: Jan 31, 2014 1:52 PM

    Behavior like this by policemen who should be trusted and respected have instead earned them the nickname ‘pigs’ throughout history.

  45. reecan says: Jan 31, 2014 2:11 PM

    You Seattle fans act like you’ve won something? I understand that you want show your worth beating successful teams like the 9ers but being jerks and not having won anything yet is pretty silly. Be careful not to go down the road the Raider Fans went and Loved being the Nasty Jerks of the league loving being the Bad Guy … Then complain when people hate them when that’s what they wanted in the first place! Sherman is a guy that can get you to that place fast, no different than “TO” who was a good WR but we had to get rid of him. Its not just about Crabtree, its any WR that matches up with him. Remember the Atlanta WR (white?) that beat him for a TD in the playoffs? What did Sherman do? He clapped like he was praising him but in fact disrespecting him. When Sherman falls from grace, and he will, fans will remember is antics and rants, then cheer. That will add to the breakdown of his play. If you don’t win Sunday the Only thing will be remember about Seattle is Sherman’s rants and that you can’t win the Big One.

    The po po there must be awfully bored.

  47. sonoco says: Jan 31, 2014 2:24 PM

    Hawk fans coming in here to make any sort of deal out of probably the most innocuous off season offense from an NFL player in recent memory two days before the biggest game in their self-important franchise’s history is pretty funny. And can anyone tell me if there’s an fan base more in love with itself than Seattle?

  48. rhone16 says: Jan 31, 2014 2:42 PM

    I have to admit that I was pretty relieved when I clicked on the link (from PFT’s tweet, which didn’t say the name) and saw it was just Daniel Kilgore walking while drunk (how dare he), and NOT Alex Boone.

  49. fdugrad says: Jan 31, 2014 4:49 PM

    I suppose we all had a snoot full sometime in our lives, so it’s certainly a relatable situation. I am very relieved that they had enough sense to be “staggering” rather than driving.

  50. charger383 says: Jan 31, 2014 7:33 PM

    Well I hope MADD is happy

  51. seaeagle707 says: Jan 31, 2014 11:41 PM

    Those Titans fans are a mean-spirited bunch. Cop better hope the Niners don’t play them anytime soon.

  52. adderal says: Feb 1, 2014 10:53 AM

    That mug belongs to our next starting center possibly.

  53. radar8 says: Apr 15, 2014 2:53 PM

    Arrested for being drunk and walking on the sidewalk? Really?
    Every team in the NFL would be thrilled to have their players walk home after drinking too much.

    Virtually every player in the NFL drinks too much at one point or another. Some off the Azzhats drive and get arrested or kill someone in a car accident.

    Kilgore drank too much but had the good sense to walk instead of drive.
