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.
