The Cleveland Browns’ star wide receiver Josh Gordon was arrested this holiday weekend for DWI. He was pulled over in Raleigh, NC for allegedly speeding 50 in a 35 zone and he failed a breath alcohol test, although not by much. According to reports, he tested at 0.09, just slightly over the legal limit of 0.08.
The DUI occurred while he was facing a one year suspension by the NFL for a second offense violation of the league’s drug policy.
The arrest also occurred while Gordon was driving a 2015 Cadillac Escalade owned by the Charlotte Hornet’s 2014 first round pick, P.J. Hairston.
Interestingly enough, “Gordon’s $500 bond was paid by Haydn “Fats” Thomas, a convicted felon from Durham who is linked to Hairston and to the rental cars he was driving in a series of traffic stops in the summer of 2013. Hairston’s off-the-court troubles before what would have been his junior season led to his dismissal from UNC.” (quote from WRAL.com)
