The last we heard of Vontae Davis, he was quitting on the Buffalo Bills and retiring from football at halftime of a week 2 game against the Los Angeles Chargers. It was one of the strangest occurrences we had seen transpire during an NFL game, and while Davis would go on to call his retirement, “therapeutic,” it doesn’t appears as though things are going any better for him during his post-NFL life.
The former Pro Bowl cornerback is facing some serious DUI chargers as it was reported that Davis was arrested in South Florida after crashing his vehicle into a disabled car on the side of the highway.
To make matters worse, the disabled car wound up hitting a person who was next to it. That person was taken to a local hospital with multiple injuries, according to Fox Sports’ Andy Slater.
Davis was found sleeping on the shoulder of the road when police arrived. He apparently told the officers that he had only consumed “two mixed drinks,” while claiming that he was sleeping on the side of the road because he was “tired.”
From the sound of it, Davis could be facing some serious charges as a result of this incident. the condition of the person who was stuck by the vehicle will be a huge factor in the degree of punishment Davis receives.
Vontae Davis was a first-round pick of the Miami Dolphins back in 2009. He spent three seasons in South Beach before joining the Indianapolis Colts in 2012. During his six years in Indy, he made it to the Pro Bowl twice and became a big part of their secondary.
He signed a one-year deal with the Bills in 2018, but he famously pulled himself from the game during the first half of a week 2 contest against the Los Angeles Chargers. He never returned for the second half, and after the game he released a statement to officially announce his retirement.
His decision to quit on his team received a ton of scrutiny at the time. Despite a solid NFL career that included 22 interceptions, Davis is still best remembered for his mid-game retirement—although this latest incident could change that.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
