Redskins' Bryon Westbrook Charged with DUI

Posted by Unknown | Mar 10, 2014 | 0 Comments

Bryon Westbrook of the Washington Redskins was arrested on charges of DUI early Friday morning.

The 25 year-old cornerback was driving a gary Mercedes on Route 5 near Lakewood Place around 2 a.m. Friday, when a Charles County sheriff's deputy says he observed Westbrook driving erratically. Diane Richardson, a spokeswoman for the department, said the deputy saw the Mercedes “cross the lane marker several times.” Upon stopping Westbrook, the deputy “detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage.” emanating from the vehicle.

Richardson said Westbrook failed “several field sobriety tests” and refused a breathalyzer. Westbrook was 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.

The Redskins released a statement Friday acknowledging the charges. “We take these issues very seriously… Moving forward, we plan to meet with Byron and will continue to monitor the situation.”
