I have no sympathy for people who are arrested for DUI. Too many people die each year because of it, I personally have lost a friend whose car was totaled after a driver whom I mind you blew a .11 crossed over the solid line and hit him head on. Drinking and driving is not a joke, if you are going to be drinking to the point where you are legally intoxicated you need to make sure you have a ride, call a cab, or walk. Idc if he only blew a .09 or a .10 he was still legally drunk, being that he is a 7th round pick, already had legal red flags, was given a 2nd chance and blew it before he even signed a contract I could care less if he ever sees the field

OK, so I think my comments may have distracted this thread from being about football. I'm going to try and straighten that out before it gets locked.

I'm not trying to point out that a .1 isn't a big deal or is a big deal. Its illegal. period.

My point was that I'm not going to hold him to any different standard than I do with anyone else I know.

just my opinion.

If he loses his job b/c of it, its his fault. I'm not going to lose sleep over it.

If he keeps is job and gets a third chance, I'm not going to be upset about it.

He was a highly touted football player with some off field issues. I'd like to see what he has.

I'd also like to see him go to some sort of drug and alcohol counseling. Maybe they can make that mandatory in his contract since it hasn't been made yet.

And to bulldog, you have to set a limit somewhere with the blood alcohol tests. If you are unsure, you shouldn't risk it. Does being a jerk to a police officer help him decide to push a charge? Most likely. I know with the cops I speak to that it plays a large part. That is why you don't put yourself in that position, call a cab, hook up with a sober ugly girl for a ride or just use your feet.


Should he have done it? or course not.

all I'm saying is that nobody would care if it was your friend or yourself. I'm sure most of here do it. Have a few drinks, and drive home. Not drunk, or buzzed. Whether you were at dinner with someone or a friends house watching the game. It happens. Which is my point.

I'm not going to put this guy on any different standard just b/c he's a pro athlete.


Agree.

.09-.10 is no big deal.

Should he have done it? No.

Should he be crucified by the FO for having done it? No, not if he is any good! Laughing


No big deal?

According to the most recent numbers at just .06 a driver is TWICE as likely to be involved in a fatality wreck... At .1% you are TWELVE times more likely to be in a fatality crash... And how many times is that fatality an innocent person driving down he road - not the drunk?

Idiots...


Link?


Try your friendly local DMV. http://www.dmv.org/oh-ohio/automotive-law/dui.php

Having worked crash scenes when I was still an ohio police officer, having many friends die in alcohol related traffic wrecks, and almost being killed myself by a drunk the "no big deal" attitude is what gets gets so many people killed....

A deferred sentence is a sentence that is suspended until after a defendant has completed a period of probation. If the defendant fulfills the stipulations surrounding probation, a judge may then throw out the sentence and guilty plea, clearing the incident from their record. If the defendant violates probation, he or she must serve the full sentence immediately.

Armonty's over/under for violating his probation: 30 days.

Yes. Basically he can't commit another criminal violation or he goes to jail for a year. Which doesn't usually happen either Rolling Eyes

I think he better be impressive at camp. He still has that lingering over his head, so he will probably have to do more to earn his spot than he would have prior to the DUI.

the coaching staff must find him at least a little bit impressive.

imo he should've been cut immediately after the DUI. with all the DL depth on the Browns, we simply don't need Armonty.

Hope this works out.

This is the type of pick we have to hit big on to gain ground on the rest of the division/league.
