    Is it too hard to ask for theses guys to not cause any distractions, and clearly focus on their job for the next month... I have said it before, (obviously, nobody should drink and drive,) but, I do not know how a wealthy athlete cannot afford a chaffuer or taxi in these situations... :tdown:

    I hear someone said it was actually Ryan Krause, again.

    Ex Charger, who seems to be drinking his way to oblivion...

    Last seen as a Houston Texan.

    He also didn't wreck or hurt anybody but I still don't see how these highly paid athletes can't get a cab, hotel, or even a limo.

    I suspect that some suspension will be served.

    It would still be a lot cooler if it were Ryan Krause instead of VJ.

    From what I hear he was released after 3 hours and refused to blow. It would take almost that long to process him and get a blood test admininstered. There's a good chance that with those two facts that there will not be much of a case against him. I bet his BAC was not above a .06.

    My prediction is that the case gets dropped.

    True. Even if his BAC was high, he's got the $$$$.

    Maybe he was smart, refused field sobriety tests in favor of testing at the station and by the time they administered the test he was well below .08.

    even if this were the case, he should have called a car service.

    There is NO excuse for driving while under the influence. NONE. Getting caught doing it may be the best thing that ever happens to a drunk driver, especially if it makes him think about how easily he could have injured or killed innocent people, not to mention himself.

    Grow up, VJ. You're in the big leagues now.

    Well said.

    EDIT: Let me clarify. I agree with the statement 'There is NO excuse for DUI. NONE'.

    I am not commenting on VJ per se. If he is found guilty then he is fortunate nobody got injured including himself and he needs to know this is something one should never do period. If he is innocent, 'move along, nothing more to see here'.

    In my experience there are two basic types of drunk drivers, the ones who get caught and are completely embarrassed and mortified, and the ones who will don't think much of getting caught and will do it again.

    Entirely true. Let's hope VJ falls into the first category.

    wow all i see is a bunch of people on here judging him...Vincent Jackson was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving, maybe back off til the facts come out first, then try examine self and think of a time when you screwed up in life and try not to judge so harshly. :abq1:

    Exactly. :yes:

    I will almost guarantee you that at least one of these high and mighty types is carrying around a DUI of their own.
