Fairfax County police confirmed Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis was charged with driving under the influence at Tyson's Corner, Virginia, in his year-old Rolls-Royce Phantom.
Chuck Carroll of CBS DC reports that a passerby called 911 to report a man slumped over the driver's seat at the intersection, and when police and EMTs responded, he tried to drive away.
On Wednesday, the NFL announced that the 28-year-old Davis is suspended indefinitely for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. It's his second, after a four-game ban in 2011 that Davis claimed was for marijuana. This time he says he unwittingly took a banned substance in a nutritional supplement.
Davis, who is poised to become a free agent, will have to apply for reinstatement. He took the news of this suspension well, it seems—Davis was spotted partying at The Huxley nightclub in D.C. on Wednesday night. Police said DUI arrest was made at 3:45 p.m. the next day.
