Florida fans of the Los Angeles Rams may be surprised to learn that, after their 34-0 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sept. 16, their practice squad center was arrested and charged with DUI. Aaron Neary, 25, was arrested by police in Simi Valley, California, on theevening following the game, which he watched from the sidelines with fellow team members on the practice squad. At around 6:27 p.m., Simi Valley police began receiving calls and reports on its emergency line about an erratic driver in the area. Reportedly, callers said that it appeared that the driver may be operating his vehicle under the influence.

The vehicle had crashed into several fixed objects in the area, including trash cans, mailboxes and the sign designating a bus stop near Sinaloa Road and Royal Avenue. After the accidents, the car kept going down the road. Eventually, local police pulled over the vehicle on El Monte Drive near El Lado Drive, finding Neary behind the wheel. After stopping Neary, police administered a breath test to the athlete.

According to police, the breathalyzer results showed a blood alcohol concentration of .17 percent, more than twice the legal BAC limit of .08 percent. He was arrested at the scene and charged with DUI offenses. At the East County Jail, Neary was accused of suspicion of misdemeanor DUI with a blood alcohol count of .08 or greater, property damage and hit and run.

When people in Florida are charged with drunk driving, they could face serious, life-changing consequences. Penalties for a DUI conviction can include license revocation, hefty fines and jail time. A DUI defense lawyer can help people to defend themselves in court and before trial by challenging police and prosecution evidence.
