Carolina Panthers cut WR Dwayne Jarrett after second DWI arrest

Updated at 5:56 p.m.

The Carolina Panthers cut wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett this afternoon, just hours after his second arrest for driving while impaired.

Filed at 7:45 a.m.

Dwayne Jarrett, wide receiver for the Carolina Panthers, was arrested and charged with driving while impaired early Tuesday morning in Charlotte.

Jarrett, 23, was stopped at 2:08 a.m., according to the Mecklenburg County sheriff's report.

Jarrett, who played at the University of Southern California and has one touchdown as a pro, was arrested for DWI in March 2008 and the second arrest may bring a suspension.

Jarrett's arrest marks the third consecutive week in which a late Monday/early Tuesday incident has involved an NFL wide receiver: New York Jets WR Braylon Edwards was arrested for drunk driving on Sept. 21 and Jacksonville Jaguars was involved in a pistol-whipping incident in the late hours of Sept. 27.

You know if the Packers would have cut Brett Farve years ago after he said he was on "pain killers" when he played for them.
