Criminal Defense From A Former Prosecutor

Los Angeles football player accused of DUI

A California professional athlete is facing DUI charges after being arrested in Ventura County on Sept. 16. Aaron Neary, a practice squad center with the Los Angeles Rams, was detained after he collided with mailboxes, a bus stop sign and trash cans in Simi Valley at around 6:27 p.m. The accident happened near the intersection of Royal Avenue and Sinaloa Road. Simi Valley police claimed that they received multiple calls complaining about Neary's driving, reporting that someone was operating a vehicle erratically and hitting fixed objects without stopping.

Police claimed that callers voiced suspicions that the driver was potentially operating a vehicle while drunk. After the calls, authorities pulled him over on El Monte Drive. They gave him a breath test, and Neary was arrested on DUI charges after reportedly showing a blood alcohol concentration of .17. The legal limit in California is .08. Neary is now facing allegations of suspicion of DUI, DUI with a BAC level of over .08 and hit-and-run causing property damage. Following the incident, Rams coach Sean McVay spoke to reporters, saying that the team was aware of the incident.

Neary, 25, had been on the sidelines of his team's win over the Arizona Cardinals earlier in the day. The game took place at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and Neary observed with his fellow members of the practice squad. McVay said that he viewed the incident as a learning experience.

DUI charges can have a serious impact on people's lives. Many people need to drive in order to go to work, attend school or take care of their families. A DUI defense lawyer can help people accused of driving while under the influence to challenge police and prosecution evidence and work to avoid a conviction.
