DUI Charges Dropped Against AZ Cardinals' Porter

Posted by Unknown | Mar 10, 2014 | 0 Comments

Prosecutors in Bakersfield, California have dropped charges of drunken driving filed against Arizona Cardinals player Joey Porter.

According to court documents released by Deputy District Attorney Mark Pafford, prosecutors found insufficient evidence to prove the linebacker guilty of DUI. Porter was arrested at a fast-food restaurant parking lot in Bakersfield on suspicion of DUI and resisting arrest, according to officials with the California Highway Patrol. Pafford said there was no probable cause to indict porter on either of the charges.

Daniel Rodriguez, Porter's attorney, said his client passed a blood and alcohol test. Porter recorded a blood alcohol content of 0.07 and 0.08 with a margin of error of 0.02. Based on police officers' testimony, Pafford determined that Porter did not drive recklessly and followed an order to pull his car over.
