I have never understood athletes that drive after drinking, and it appears that Saturday that very thing took place again, as Titans DE Jevon Kearse was arrested and charged with driving under the influence. The “Freak” was arrested by the Vanderbilt Metro Police, then transported to Nashville’s Metro jail and booked.
Sounds like Kearse took to the roads in pretty messed up shape, as police say when he was stopped, Kearse exhibited slurred speech, red eyes and smelled of alcohol. Kearse refused to take a breath test. While it’s not an excuse for a young player to get in trouble, it’s even more of a head scratcher for a veteran like Kearse to do something that dumb.
The Titans signed Kearse back in March after he was released by the Eagles this offseason to a two-year deal worth $6 million.
