    FRESNO, Calif. -- Former NFL player Lorenzo Neal has been sentenced to three years of probation after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor drunken driving charge.
    The four-time Pro Bowl fullback also was sentenced Monday to eight days in an adult offender work program and ordered to pay $1,861 in fines and court fees.
    Authorities say the former Fresno State University football player was charged in a July 4th crash in which his pickup truck hit a pole north of Clovis.
    The Fresno Bee reports Neal is listed as chief information officer for a company called Safe Ride Solutions, which offers confidential rides for intoxicated drivers.
    According to the company's website, "Lorenzo feels drinking and driving is a major problem and effects people from all walks of life and all segments of society."

    I guess he included himself in the "all walks of life" mention.

    High enough to wrap his truck around a pole.

    I've wrapped a station wagon around a pole sober, so this isn't terribly helpful. His BAC was between 0% and 1%. What it actually was is irrelevant except to say, "Wow, he was really drunk!"

    The report was that he was a only couple points over the legal limit....... maybe, he's just a bad driver.
