Raiders wide receiver, Darius Heyward-Bey, has been charged wit DUI stemming from an incident April 7,2012.
According to CHP spokesman Tony Tam, the Raiders first-round draft pick of 2009 was driving his 2012 Range Rover on the lower deck about 2 a.m. April 7 when an officer spotted him speeding and weaving in his lane.
Heyward-Bey, 25, was pulled over and given a field sobriety test, which he failed, the CHP said. He was cited for alleged drunken driving and later released.
It's never a good idea to be the 1st player to test a new coach or general manager's resolve when it comes to off field shenanigans. This normally would not be a big deal with Al at the helm, but with Allen having the reputation of being a no nonsense type coach, and Reggie McKenzie being anything but shy when it comes to letting the world know it's a new day in Oakland, it will be interesting to see what happens now that there's a new sheriff in town.
