NY Jets tight end Chris Herndon pleads guilty to DUI

From Bleacher Report:

New York Jets tight end Chris Herndon has had his driver’s license revoked for 90 days after pleading guilty to driving under the influence, according to TMZ Sports.

Per that report:

“The 22-year-old smashed into another car on the I-80 highway in New Jersey on June 2 after witnesses say he was speeding at more than 100 mph. The police footage, obtained by TMZ Sports, shows Herndon’s 2018 Nissan Armada flipped on its side and badly damaged. Miraculously, both Herndon and the other driver—a 76-year-old man—escaped without any major injuries.”

He reportedly failed both a field sobriety test and a breathalyzer test.

TMZ noted that Herndon’s sentence included completing 12 hours of an “intoxicated driver education program” and $639 in fees and fines. It was unclear if Herndon pleaded guilty to a lesser charge, however.

Former NBA Center Felton Spencer charged with DUI

From USA Today:

Former NBA and University of Louisville basketball player Felton Spencer was arrested early Sunday morning in Oldham County (Kentucky) and charged with driving under the influence.

Spencer, 51, was found asleep in the driver’s seat of his 2006 Ford Expedition around 2:28 a.m. at a gas station in Prospect, Kentucky, according to Oldham County Police’s arrest citation.

Police said Spencer had a plastic cup with ice in it in his hand. When police woke him, he told them he had come from his house and fallen asleep at the gas station and that the cup contained Crown Royal. Spencer also said he had consumed three glasses of Crown Royal, according to police.

Spencer “was unsteady on his feet and had glassy eyes” and “smelled strongly of alcoholic beverage,” the arrest citation said.  During a field sobriety test, Spencer tried to use the police cruiser for balance, police said, and the test was stopped for Spencer’s safety.

He refused a breath test, saying he would not take one without his attorney present.

The 7-foot-1 Spencer played for Louisville from 1986-90, going on to become the sixth pick in the 1990 NBA draft. He played for six different NBA teams in a career that lasted through 2002.

Wrestler Stephan “American Psycho Bonnar arrested for DUI

From the NY Post:

Dramatic footage shows UFC legend Stephan Bonnar being pinned to the ground and cuffed as he was arrested for DUI.

The fighter, nicknamed “The American Psycho,” was detained Sunday afternoon in Las Vegas after motorists reported his “erratic” driving at 90 miles per hour, police said.

Witness Katie Dyer, 29 said: “If nobody had stopped him I think he would be dead.

“He was going to hit something, whether it was a car or a wall, and another person could have died.”

Dyer was part of a convoy moving south along I-15 into Las Vegas when she says she saw Bonnar’s red Cadillac dart across the midsection of the road.

Footage filmed by her 10-year-old son, Chance, shows Bonnar crawling along, straddling the emergency lane and holding up traffic.

Dyer claims that she, along with other members of the Jeep club JeepFam, went on to “box in” Bonnar and reduce their speed, forcing him to stop.

Passing truckers, meanwhile, arranged their vehicles in a line across the road, which brought the convoy to a standstill at around 2 p.m.

Police and traffic cops were called to the scene, and footage shows a Nevada highway patrol officer arresting Bonnar.

Video shows Bonnar, 41, looking flushed as he is held face-down to the gravel by four of the Jeep club members…
