Dorial Green-Beckham was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated in December, and details have emerged about the incident involving the former Missouri wide receiver.
On Tuesday, it was learned from a report by the Springfield News-Leader’s Harrison Keegan that Green-Beckham was picking up a drunk friend during the event, which occurred early on Dec. 30 in Springfield, Mo. Green-Beckham’s friend reportedly was being processed for DWI and called the former Tigers star to give him a ride.
When Green-Beckham arrived, per a probable cause statement used by authorities, a Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper noticed Green-Beckham’s eyes were “watery and bloodshot and his speech was slurred.” The former Missouri player agreed to a breathalyzer and registered a sample above the legal limit of .08 percent.
Green-Beckham had 1,278 yards with 17 touchdowns during the 2012 and 2013 seasons with Missouri. During his time with the Tigers, Green-Beckham was charged twice for marijuana possession and then was dismissed from the team by then-coach Gary Pinkel after the player was accused of pushing a woman down a flight of stairs.
Green-Beckham, taken by the Tennessee Titans in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft, had a combined 941 yards receiving and 6 touchdowns with the Titans in 2015 and Philadelphia Eagles in 2016. The Eagles released him in June.
