Daryl Worley Charged With DUI, Firearms Felony

Former Eagles cornerback Daryl Worley was charged with violation of the uniform firearms act, driving under the influence, disorderly conduct and other offenses stemming from an early Sunday-morning arrest, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Inquirer writes

Worley, 23, was found unconscious in a car near Broad Street in Philadelphia at 6 a.m. on Sunday morning. According to police, he was involved in a confrontation with officers who woke him and a taser was used to subdue him. Police also found a gun in the car that was not properly registered.

The Eagles released the cornerback Sunday evening while he was still in custody. His stay in Philadelphia lasted a little over a month, as the cornerback was acquired from the Panthers in a deal that sent Torrey Smith to Carolina in March.

In two seasons with Carolina, the third-round pick out of West Virginia recorded three interceptions and two sacks while starting 25 of his 31 games.

In addition to being released, Worley could face additional punishment from the league.

      Seriously. Didn’t the owner of the Jets make something where any player can make one phone call and they get a ride anytime? Want tongive americans jobs? Give every athlete a personal “no” man. Every time a bad idea comes up they can tell them no.

        They’d probably do it for free in exchange with hanging out with players.

        The personal “no” man will have to be larger than the athlete lol… b/c he’ll likely have to b slap him to get him to do anything.

    The NFL is supposed to have a ride service I think. Then the fact these guys could afford a LIMO home much less a taxi. AND WHY DO THEY CARRY GUNS?

      If I was worth millions, I’m either carrying a gun or having security.

        Go and register it and get a permit to carry. It’s not that hard.

          Even with a permit, he’d have a charge on his hands for having a weapon while intoxicated. That’s a no-no pure and simple. Can’t imagine why they’d not want drunk people packing heat…

    He got enough money to hire Perri, the one of the biggest defense attorneys in Philly
