The details of Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Letroy Guion’s DUI arrest have come out and they are pretty much what you would expect.
Guion had a blood-alcohol level of .086, but stumbled and had slurred speech when he was arrested. He also reportedly smelled of booze and weed. That right there should get him into the league’s substance abuse program, if he wasn’t in it already.
Guion begged the police to let him go and also told them he was drinking Hennessy.
“Please sir, it’s my birthday,” he told an officer, according to the records. “I can have someone else drive.”
“I know I’m drunk,” he told the officer in the records. “I’ve been drinking Hennessy all night. I don’t drink any of that weak stuff, only the hard stuff.”
Only the hard stuff…
As you know, Guion will be suspended for the first four games of the 2017 season for violating the league’s performance enhancing drugs policy.
This incident could bring another suspension.
That has led to speculation about whether the Packers will even both to keep Guion around.
