Byron Westbrook charged with drunk driving -- UPDATED

Update, 6:26 p.m.

Washington Redskins cornerback Byron Westbrook was arrested on a drunk driving charge early Friday after a Charles County sheriff's deputy saw him driving erratically on a state highway in Waldorf, the sheriff's department said.

Westbrook, 25, who lives in Herndon, was driving a gray Mercedes on Route 5 near Lakewood Place shortly before 2 a.m. when the deputy saw the car "cross the lane marker several times," said Diane Richardson, a department spokeswoman. After stopping Westbrook, who was alone, the deputy "detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage" in the vehicle, Richardson said.

She said Westbrook failed "several field sobriety tests" and declined to take a breath test. After being charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, driving while impaired, negligent driving and failing to stay on the right side of the road, he was released to await a court appearance, Richardson said. His arrest was first reported on the Web site of WRC-TV (Channel 4).


The Redskins said in a statement this afternoon they are aware of the charges Westbrook faces.

"We take these issues very seriously," General Manager Bruce Allen said in a prepared statement. "Moving forward, we plan to meet with Byron and will continue to monitor the situation."

Westbrook did not immediately return messages seeking comment Friday. Westbrook appeared in 15 of the Redskins' 16 games last season, mostly on special teams. He started at cornerback against New Orleans on Dec. 6 and played a role in 12 tackles on the season.

Perhaps his most memorable play of the season came Oct. 10 at Carolina. On a Panthers' punt, Westbrook was pushed into punt returner Antwaan Randle El, and the Panthers recovered the ball. Westbrook, a Maryland native who played football at DeMatha High School and Salisbury State University, is the younger brother of Philadelphia running back Brian Westbrook and joined the Redskins as an undrafted free agent in 2007. He was a part of Washington's practice squad in 2007 and '08 before being included on the 53-man roster last season.

The most serious charge he faces, driving under the influence of alcohol, is punishable by up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine, in addition to a six-month driver's license suspension. Under Maryland law, a motorist with a blood-alcohol level of .08 percent or higher is considered to be driving under the influence.

Westbrook is the second Redskins' player to face alcohol-related criminal charges this offseason. Offensive lineman Chad Rinehart was arrested last month in Cedar Falls, Iowa, and charged with for misdemeanor public intoxication.

Your Day 4 Sharks Olympic midday update

Douglas Murray played in the early game and his Swedish team won, 4-2. Thomas Griess goes for Germany tonight versus a tough team from Finland.

Sharks are all over the stat leaders. Heatley is tied for the lead in points (4) and goals (3). Boyle, Pavelski and Marleau are among the 17 players with multiple assists. Heatley and Marleau are among the 7 players in the tourney with 3 or more points. Pavelski and Thornton are in the top 10 in face-off win %, both at better than 60%.

And that is your midday Shark Olympic hockey update

Innocent until proven guilty, right?

This is all hearsay.

We'll see what his lawyers have to say about it...

I'm sure he can afford a lot more "Justice" than most of us, so I really doubt he'll get the five days in jail that I got on my first DUI. Not to mention losing my license for 18 months, $800 in court costs, Alcohol meetings twice a week at a cost of $1200, and generally serving to "pad the Judge's stats"...

especially since the guy before my case had hit a telephone pole, called his lawyer, 4 hours later, called the police, blew the exact same BAC that I did, and walked out with his license.

Or the guy who was on his 3rd DWI and used to occasionally give me a ride to and from my alcohol classes. See, his plea bargain (lawyer, money) was that his first two DWIs "be erased" as he used to put it.

Justice is blind, but it can smell money and it doesn't give a shti about fairness, truth, or right or wrong.

Show me the JUSTICE.

Daniels is probably gone even if he's a good fit at DE in the 3-4. We're trying to get younger, and Golston, Haynesworth, Alexander and Griff, who's also pretty old but a more complete player, should lock those positions up. Agree that Smith should be re-signed quickly as he's a pretty solid option at punter, although he should never be asked to pass the ball again. Maybe Jones, if he's willing to sign a small contract as he can fill in at T in a pinch. I think the Skins signed a potential replacement for LS, although I might be wrong there and the rest can go. Rabach was pretty good for awhile, but has struggled the past couple of seasons and we need to see if any of the younger guys can handle the load.

And on another note, bye bye Westbrook, you were camp fodder anyway and you just lost your last chance.

Well, first DUI, meaning, it was #1 of a possible infinity, meaning, that I had NO priors.

It was also my last, but if I had said "my last DUI," you'd be asking how many were BEFORE that one.

So, one DUI, 18 months with no license (revoked, not suspended), $800 in court costs, $1200 in Alcohol classes, 5 days in jail.

It's what you can afford.

See: Sean Taylor, Bruce Smith... HECK, go sit in the courtroom one day and you'll see how "justice" works.

A guy with drug money gets a decent lawyer and ends up with probation, another guy with no money does a month for stealing food.

I'll tell you this: it aint what they show on TV - AT ALL.

It's quick, time is of the essence, most of the "work" is done before the courtroom appearance as a plea bargain, and justice doesn't have squat to do with it.

A good friend of mine, who is now an upstanding citizen, got off with probation for selling marijuana. He had scales, bags of weed all ready for delivery, guns, and drug money (a couple grand in 20s, 10s, and 5s - all respectably bundled with a rubber band money clip).

The police actually got involved because he had threatened a neighbor with a hand gun and fired into the air as the guy ran in the other direction.

Not to mention, he'd been in and out of court for violent offenses, including malicious wounding, among many assault & batteries.

The police found traces of cocaine in much of his paraphernalia, as well.

And he walked.

I sat there and watched people getting slammed with time - one guy got a month for stealing a pack of cigarettes. But, he dropped a bunch of money on a decent lawyer.

The best part was, a couple years later, the Police actually mailed him a check for the wad of money they had confiscated from him.

Go figure.
