It didn’t take long for Le’Veon Bell to be outdone. Bell, as you might remember from my previous blog post, is the Steeler running back who was busted for DUI-cannabis on his way to the team plane for the following day’s preseason game.
Bills defensive tackle Alan Branch was busted for DUI 14 hours before his preseason game. With a BAC of 0.14. He is now an ex-Bill.
From the Niagara Gazette:
CHEEKTOWAGA — Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Alan Branch has been arrested for drunken driving.
State police say Branch was arrested at about 2 a.m. Saturday in the town of Cheektowaga after officers noticed Branch vomiting out the driver’s side door of his vehicle.
Police say Branch failed a field sobriety test and had a blood-alcohol content of .14 percent. The legal limit is .08 percent. He was charged with driving while intoxicated and released. He’s due back in court on Aug. 29. It wasn’t clear if he had a lawyer.
Branch did not play in Saturday’s preseason game against the Buccaneers.
