Green Bay Packers tight end Spencer Havner, who caught four touchdowns during the 2009 campaign, was charged with drunken driving early Saturday.
In addition, he has a fractured scapula from the incident.
According to The Union, a newspaper in Nevada County, Calif., Havner lost control of his motorcycle in a cul de sac.
How the fuck you do that, I don’t know.
Oh, wait, Havner was drunk.
This isn’t good news for Havner, who was admitted to Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital before the popo were contacted.
Havner is a free agent this offseason, albeit an exclusive rights free agent – meaning the Packers are the only team that can sign him. However, this is the kind of off-field idiot move that could get a player cut.
If that happens it will be unfortunate because Havner, who was a linebacker in college, had worked his way up from the practice squad to be a valuable goal-line threat in the Packers offense.
Here’s to hoping Havner gets his shit together and stays away from motor vehicles when he’s wasted.
All he does…
Don’t be a dumbass Spence…just don’t.
Can’t dump on him to much as half the state of WI drive drunk on saturday night (and thats being conservative). especially the young guys I remember hearing horror stories about ‘favre’ back in his drinking days (the guy is more then just a legend on the football field) but I don’t know he ever drove (or at least he didn’t get caught)
It’s indefensible no matter who it is. But it’s especially stupid when you’re a pro athlete. On top of that he was riding a motorcycle. When you’re that lucky, to making boatloads of cash for playing a sport, how on earth do you do something as dangerous as riding a motorcycle? And then to do it drunk… it boggles the mind. Apparently he never heard of Jayson Williams or Kellen Winslow.
That said, I hope he pulls it together. He was a great story last season and he could become a solid tight end. Could.
