Welcome back to the NFL, Los Angeles.
Not only do you have a team again, but when that team has guys get arrested, your team is aware.
Following Tuesday morning’s arrest of safety T.J. McDonald on non-alcohol DUI charges, the Rams got to put out the kind of perfunctory statement fans should get used to when things like this happen.
“We are aware of the incident involving T.J. McDonald this morning,” the Rams said, via the Los Angeles Times. “We are gathering information and will have no further comment at this time.”
The information we have gathered is that McDonald hit a parked car, and officers deemed him to be impaired, but by a substance other than alcohol.
McDonald was released on $300 bond at 6:23 p.m., and has a June 3 court date.
Perhaps he’ll show up for his, unlike teammate Tre Mason, who missed his first appearance but later pleaded not guilty.
Mason was arrested in March for resisting arrest, reckless driving and possession of marijuana in Florida.
The two arrests and the involvement of drugs that are still illegal in the eyes of the NFL will open the door for possible suspensions for both players.
