New York Jets linebacker pleaded guilty on Wednesday to DWI chargers for a wrong way accident in the Lincoln Tunnel from February.
According to Dennis Waszak Jr. of the Associated Press Scott Kazmir Jersey , Donahue expects his outstanding DUI case in Montana from last May to be resolved in the coming 2-3 days as well.
Donahue has a hearing scheduled in that case for August 9.
“Well, since the incident, I haven’t had a drop of alcohol,” said Donahue, who entered a 30-day treatment program in Jacksonville after the Lincoln Tunnel incident. “And I’ve encouraged my teammates that do have any issues with that subject, too. I like to help everyone out. It’s definitely changed my perspective on a lot of things.”
Donahue was arrested in Billings nine days after he was drafted by the Jets in May 2017. His blood alcohol content was tested at 0.137 with the legal limit being 0.08.
Donahue would almost certainly face discipline from the NFL as well for the pair of incidents.
Authorities issued a warrant Friday for the arrest of three-time Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Bennett, who is accused of injuring a paraplegic woman as he tried get onto the field at last year’s Super Bowl to celebrate with his brother.
The Harris County district attorney’s office said a grand jury indicted the 32-year-old Bennett Doug Flutie Jersey , acquired earlier this month by the Philadelphia Eagles, on a felony count of injury to the elderly.
Bennett was a spectator at the game at NRG Stadium in Houston in February 2017 when he tried to get onto the field immediately afterward to see his brother, Martellus Bennett, a tight end for the Patriots at the time. Prosecutors allege he pushed through security personnel, including a 66-year-old woman in a wheelchair who was a stadium employee and who had told him to use a different entrance to access the field. Bennett is also accused of pushing two other people, including another woman, and ignoring a request by a police officer to stop as he made his way onto the field.
Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said Bennett allegedly told the people he had pushed Darius Leonard Jersey , ”You all must know who I am and I can own this (expletive). I’m going down to the field, whether you like it or not.”
Acevedo called Bennett ”morally bankrupt” for pushing the two women. Police said the disabled woman suffered a sprained shoulder when she was allegedly pushed by Bennett, hitting the back of her 800-pound, motorized wheelchair.
”Mr. Bennett may think that because he’s an NFL player and some time passed … he may have thought that, number one, rules don’t apply to him, number two Youth Nyheim Hines Jersey , he doesn’t have to respect the dignity of a paraplegic woman who’s trying to earn a living,” Acevedo said at a news conference.
Acevedo said a detective did not actively start working the case until September because the police department had prioritized more serious cases.
The charge of injury to the elderly can be filed if a person intentionally or knowingly causes injury to a person 65 or older. It carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. County authorities say they’re talking with Bennett’s legal team about surrendering on the charge.
The Eagles acquired Bennett from the Seattle Seahawks, where he became one of the dominant defensive linemen in the game. Bennett had 8 sacks last season and has 54 in his nine-year career. Bennett has three years remaining on his contract, with a base salary of just $1.65 million in 2018. That number jumps to $6 million in 2019 and $7.5 million in 2020.
”We are aware of the situation involving Michael Bennett and are in the process of gathering more information,” the Eagles said. ”Because this is an ongoing legal matter, we will have no further comment at this time.”
Bennett’s agent Youth Da'Ron Payne Jersey , Doug Hendrickson, did not respond to a message seeking comment Friday.
