NFL DRAFT DIAMONDS

Fred Davis continues to bury himself deeper with the NFL; Arrested for DUI

Yesterday Fred Davis was suspended indefinitely because he violated the NFL’s substance abuse policy. Well Davis had responded saying he was going to fight the NFL, because it was a mistake what he took:

“I would like to clarify the circumstances that resulted in my current suspension. In the past, I made the mistake of knowingly ingesting a banned substance,” Davis said in a statement released by the NFL Players Association on Wednesday. “For over two years, I’ve worked very hard to eliminate marijuana from my life, and I have not had a positive test for it since 2011. Unfortunately, a couple of months ago I took a supplement that contained a banned substance.

“I now know that supplements are not regulated by the FDA and may contain banned substances. The NFL Policy is strict, and not knowing that a supplement might contain a banned substance doesn’t excuse a violation of the policy. I’ve worked closely with the NFLPA and NFL to resolve this violation, and I will be permitted to apply for reinstatement in the fall. I look forward to staying in football shape, remaining in compliance with the NFL policy, and having a chance to get back on the field to contribute to a team’s success next season.”

Well even though Davis tried to clear his name, he just buried himself deeper in a hole.  Today he was arrested and charged with a DUI. According to reporter Mike Jones, Davis was arrested at 3:45 PM Thursday afternoon. Already indefinitely suspended, it’s fair to wonder if Davis will ever play another NFL down even though he’s only 28.

Can confirm Fred Davis was pulled over today and charged with DUI today in Fairfax Country.
