Former Chargers FB Neal Busted for DUI

Former Chargers Pro Bowl fullback Lorenzo Neal was arrested for DUI after an accident on July 4th according to Corin Hoggard of KFSN TV in Fresno California.

“[He] just ran off the road, struck a pole,” said CHP Officer Axel Reyes. “Nothing real major about it. Luckily, he didn’t hit anyone and no one else was with him as a passenger.”

Neal told friends he’d just left the Copper River golf course where he had a few drinks. He didn’t think he was impaired, but an officer at the scene of the accident gave him a breathalyzer.

“A basic field sobriety test determined he was driving under the influence and then placed him under arrest,” Reyes said.

The officer put Neal in his patrol car, but because nobody was hurt and Neal’s blood alcohol content was just a couple points above the legal limit, Neal was released to a friend instead of going to jail. But the former star fullback for Fresno State and seven NFL teams managed to draw a crowd before he left the scene.
