A quartet of recent notable DUIs:
French film star Gerard Depardieu was arrested in Paris after he allegedly fell off a motorcycle. If you have seen this movie about the French judicial system, then you know he is not in for a good time when he gets his day in court.
Perhaps Demarcus Dobbs was just trying to be more like his star teammate Aldon Smith. So far, the only things they have in common are that they both play for the San Francisco 49ers, they are both defensive ends, and they both have been arrested for DUIs in 2012.
According to the Sacramento Bee:
Backup defensive end Demarcus Dobbs was arrested this morning after he was involved in a solo car crash in Santa Clara. The California Highway Patrol said DUI was suspected and that Dobbs, who turned 25 today, was arrested for marijuana possession. CSN Bay Area first reported Dobbs’ arrest.
Highway Patrol Officer D.J. Sarabia said the incident occurred at 3:45 a.m. on southbound San Tomas Expressway in Santa Clara, the city in which the 49ers have their practice facility and are building their new stadium. Sarabia said Dobbs was driving a 2011 Cadillac. He was not injured in the accident and no one else was in the car. Sarabia said Dobbs agreed to a chemical test, the results of which have not yet been completed.
