What are the odds? Charger Player Applewhite arrested for DUI in PBMay 6, 2011 No Comments
Pacific Beach seems to draw the worst out of our NFL Chargers players. What are the odds that such a small group of players could have so many alcohol-related crimes done by or near them?
In November 2009 Antonio Cromartie, then a NFL Charger’s player was questioned after someone broke a champagne bottle over another patron’s head. Listen to the audio of that story and ask if this is what you believe a typical ‘restaurant’ should be allowing.
Then, this past December 2010 Legedu Naanee was questioned after a patron at the same ‘restaurant’ and was knocked out cold. Naanee was cleared after police found a credible witness after many others had conflicting stories. He didn’t have much luck in Indy though this February–where it appears his alleged statements reveal his true character when he’s been drinking excessively.
And now, just this morning another Charger, Antwan Applewhite, was arrested for allegedly impaired driving. See the story below.
Geeze Chargers, it’s great you love to party in PB but, could you show us a little love? We’re swimming in alcohol-related problems. Maybe you could set an example for others?
SAN DIEGO — Chargers player Antwan Applewhite was arrested early Friday in Pacific Beach on suspicion of drunken driving.
The 26-year-old outside linebacker was pulled over on Grand Avenue near Gresham Street about 2:25 a.m., San Diego police said. He failed a field sobriety test, was booked into jail just after 4 a.m. and was later released on bail.
Applewhite, who is from Los Angeles, signed with the team in 2008. He played at San Diego State University from 2003 to 2006, according to the team’s website.
