Titans DE Jevon Kearse isn’t talking about his arrest on drunken driving on Sunday morning, but that’s not stopping coach Jeff Fisher from sharing his feelings on it. “I did speak with Jevon and I can say that clearly the entire organization is disappointed in the incident,” Fisher said. “But that doesn’t mean we’re going to stop what we’re doing. We’re going to continue to do what we’ve done. … We’re going to continue with the seminars and the tapes and the life skills presentations and the discussions that we have.”
Kearse, who just came back to the Titans after signing with them this past offseason, was stopped at 4:42 a.m. on Sunday morning by Vanderbilt University police after they saw the SUV he was driving weaving across the road. He failed a field sobriety test and refused a breathalyzer test. He was then taken to the Metro Nashville Criminal Justice Center where he was booked on the DUI charge.
The Titans are trying to put an end to all their off the field issues. They have had to deal with Adam “Pacman” Jones and his off the field antics the last two seasons before finally shipping him to the Cowboys. Now they have this incident with Kearse, which they want to quickly put behind them as they get set to start training camp next month.
“What they’ll see happening is because the organization has had another incident, you’ll go back and list all the others and his name will go to the top, and those guys who were involved as far back as 10 years ago, unfortunately, will resurface again,” Fisher said. “That’s part of it. That’s the world we live in. But the only way can eliminate that is to eliminate the incidents.”
