Former NFL player faces DUI charge in Florida after crash


HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) — A former NFL player was arrested on a misdemeanor driving under the influence charge after troopers say his vehicle rear-ended a pick-up truck that was on the side of a South Florida highway because of a flat tire. The accident injured the truck’s driver who had been standing outside. The Florida Highway Patrol says Vontae Davis smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech and bloodshot eyes and could barely stay awake while being interviewed by a trooper after the accident early Saturday on the Florida Turnpike. The collision sent the truck spinning into a concrete barrier.
