Demar Dotson’s NFL career has likely already been over, but his name is still in the news for some alleged terrible behavior.
Per FOX Sports’ Greg Auman, the former Bucs tackle is facing a first-degree misdemeanor battery charge after being arrested in Tampa Bay for allegedly slapping a woman in the face.
“Former Bucs tackle Demar Dotson is facing a first-degree misdemeanor battery charge after being arrested in Tampa last week. He was arrested by Hillsborough Sheriff’s officers last Friday night at his home and released on a $250 bond Monday morning.”
“Dotson slapped a woman in the face after a verbal argument escalated, according to the arrest report, and after she slapped him back, he hit her again with a closed fist, knocking her to the ground. Victim had a one-inch laceration on her face and a black eye, per the report.”
Dotson signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2009 as an undrafted free agent and played with them until 2019. When he was signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out Southern Mississippi in 2009, Dotson was little more than an afterthought. But in just a few seasons, Dotson established himself as the team’s full-time starter at right tackle.
Dotson was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ longest-tenured player, having played all 11 of his NFL seasons with the Bucs. That run came to an end when he signed with the Denver Broncos for the 2020 season. He would only play that season with them before he retired.
Dotson never won a division title in Tampa Bay, and never saw the playoffs. He saw just two winning seasons. He has started 114 career games while appearing in 138 total games.
