Another professional athlete has made the news for bad behavior and is feeling the burn from his mistake. Arizona Cardinals player DC Jefferson was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence on Friday night near Scottsdale Road and Osborne. Jefferson was pulled over initially because his car matched the description of a vehicle involved in a crash earlier that night. The officer then reported finding reasons to believe the driver was intoxicated and conducted further tests. The tight end was polite and respectful during the questioning and arrest but nevertheless was arrested and charged with DUI. Then, even more bad news for Mr. Jefferson: he was promptly released from the Cardinals.
