Raider Free Agent lineman Khalif Barnes arrested for DUI


Offensive lineman Khalif Barnes was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving in California on Sunday. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Barnes was pulled over at around 4 p.m. and taken to jail in Santa Rita after failing field sobriety tests. Barnes was cited and released after sobering up in custody and the case was referred to Alameda County prosecutors.

Barnes spent the last seven seasons with the Raiders and was a starter for much of that time. He moved into a reserve role in 2015 and started once while making 14 appearances for Oakland over the course of the season. There hasn’t been any public sign of interest around the league in his services.

Barnes was also a starter for the Jaguars, who picked him in the second round of the 2005 draft, during the first four years of his career. He was arrested for drunk driving in 2006 when he was a member of the team and ultimately received probation to resolve the case.
