Breaking News #REDSKINS new safety, Brandon Meriweather... arrested on DWI charges.— Shawn Yancy (@ShawnYancy) April 26, 2012
Former New England Patriots first round draft pick and current Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather has been arrested for driving under the influence.
Meriweather was stopped on westbound I-66 in the area of N. Ohio Street at 2:54 a.m., according to Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck. Officers detected an odor of alcohol on his breath and performed a field sobriety test, which Meriweather failed, Sternbeck said.
Meriweather’s talent on the gridiron has never been questioned, but his off-the-field thugness has always been an issue. He better shape up quick or he may find himself out of a job.
