New Orleans Saints defensive end Bobby McCray was arrested Tuesday morning and charged with a number of counts including driving while intoxicated, according to a report by The Associated Press. McCray was handcuffed after refusing to take a breath alcohol test during a routine traffic stop.

McCray was pulled over and arrested at 4:30 a.m. by an officer who caught him speeding. He was charged with DWI, speeding, careless operation of a motor vehicle and absence of vehicle registration. McCray was booked into Orleans Parish Prison but has been released on his own recognizance. Anyone who refuses a breath test under suspicion of driving drunk in Louisiana automatically loses their license for 12 months.

McCray was a two-time All-SEC second-team selection who played in 36 games while with the Florida Gators from 2001-04. He was drafted in the seventh round of the 2004 NFL Draft (249th overall) by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Stupidity on McCray’s part, but at least this time Urban Meyer can’t be blamed since he was mostly coached by Ron Zook while he was at UF.

    Relative of Carlos Dunlap??

    The trolls are still going to blame Urban Meyer. Besides, it’s not as if the University of Florida has a magical leash on its players once they graduate. McCray’s “wingman”, as we say in the military, should have been a fellow New Orleans Saint player or coach, not a Florida Gator “keep former players out of jail” nanny.
