TMZ Sports reports Rams SS T.J. McDonald was arrested for DUI early Tuesday morning.McDonald allegedly crashed into a parked car and waited for police to arrive to the scene where he was then taken into custody. McDonald wasn't arrested for alcohol abuse, but it's believed he was on some sort of medication that had him acting out of the ordinary. He was later released on his own recognizance. McDonald is now subject to a suspension.


Hate to hear this. Thought was McDonald was going to slide into the FS spot. If he's facing a suspension could change the plan...

Very disappointing to say the least.

I think this solidifies us hammering out a deal with Whitner...

Might even force us to look at Cody Davis, Christian Bryant, Jordan Lomax or Brian Randolph harder...

It's surprising to see how this keeps happening to Pro athletes. How hard is it to call up a cab, uber, lift etc to pick you up from the club?

Seems like he wont miss time according to current policies.

Under the league's current policy for substance abuse, a first-time offender generally faces a fine of two game checks, but no suspension.

If the tidbit covers everything I am incredibly impressed with TJ (obvi wish he wasn't driving drunk). I would imagine most people in the situation would have fled and not wait for police to arrive.

It's very important if he has a prescription for whatever it was...

Hard to judge the guy, almost everyone has made a terrible decision under the influence, some get caught, most do not.

Easy to say be smarter when you are sober.

If you make bad decisions while under the influence, don't allow yourself to be that much under the influence. It's really that simple. Easy to say. Easy to do. I still drink. I just limit how much I drink so that I remain in control. A drink or two is fine. That's how a smart person remains DUI free.

But it honestly sounds like this might be different than your typical dui case. So I waiting to see.

It's really not. Black and white world sure. I think most people can admit they made at least one terrible decision drunk, even a happy drunk. Doesn't mean they have a problem, doesn't mean they are a bad person.

You are in the minority of the population who can have two drinks and call it quits. I applaud you.
