Rams’ T.J. McDonald Arrested For DUI

Rams safety T.J. McDonald was arrested on DUI charges on Tuesday morning, according to TMZ Sports. McDonald allegedly crashed into a parked car and, when police arrived, they noticed that McDonald seemed inebriated. "<strong

McDonald was eventually arrested for DUI, though TMZ hears that the incident was not alcohol related. Instead, police suspect that there was medication involved. The 25-year-old has been released on his own recognizance. Depending on where things go from here, McDonald could face discipline from the league office. If McDonald is suspended by the NFL, it will be yet another blow to a Rams secondary that has already lost star cornerback Janoris Jenkins and safety Rodney McLeod this offseason.

McDonald, a former third-round pick, has appeared in (and started) 37 games for the Rams since 2013. Last season, McDonald recorded 62 total tackles, one sack, one pass defended, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery in 11 games. McDonald’s season ended in December when doctors recommended surgery for his badly injured shoulder. McDonald graded out as just the 62nd best safety in the NFL amongst 89 qualified players, according to Pro Football Focus (sub. req’d).

McDonald is the son of six-time Pro Bowler Tim McDonald, a former NFL defensive back who enjoyed a 13-year career with the Cardinals and 49ers.

    Why not have someone drive you around in your rides. Might save lots of trouble and lots of money.and someone’s life.

    • The sad thing is that there is a free service for all NFL players, coaches, and employees in which they can call a number and someone will pick them up/drive them and get their car home too.
