Tampa Bay Cornerback Eric Wright Arrested On DUI Charges

… and the Year of the DUI continues.

From the Los Angles Times:

Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Eric Wright was arrested on suspicion of felony driving under the influence near Staples Center downtown early Monday after being involved in an injury accident, Los Angeles police said.

Police responded to a report of an injury accident about 12:20 a.m. involving a Chevy Silverado pickup and a Mercedes SLS luxury sports coup at James M. Wood Boulevard and Georgia Street, said Norma Eisenman, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department.

Wright, who was not hurt, allegedly told officers he had been drinking earlier at a friend’s home in the Hollywood area and refused to submit to a Breathalyzer or field sobriety test, Eisenman said. The driver of the truck complained of pain but refused medical treatment.
