Two years ago, the Eagles traded a back-up offensive lineman (Dennis Kelly) to take a chance on troubled, but talented WR Dorial Green-Beckham. Green-Beckham kept his lazy work-ethic and mentality in Philadelphia, and the Eagles cut him before their run to the Super Bowl last season. He hasn't played in the NFL since.
News came out on Monday that the former Eagle drove drunk back in December, and was arrested.
According to TMZ, this is how his arrest went down:
"The 25-year-old had gotten a call around 3 AM on Dec. 30 from a friend -- who was being arrested for DWI -- and needed Dorial to come pick him up. When the WR arrived to the scene in his white Cadillac Escalade, cops say they noticed Dorial seemed drunk too and administered field sobriety tests ... which he failed. So, Dorial was arrested too. Green-Beckham was later charged with misdemeanor Driving While Intoxicated -- and, according to court records, he appeared in court on Monday and pled guilty. Sentencing is set for October -- he's facing up to 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine."
Some people in this world just don't know how to stay out of trouble.
