Former NFL player Eddie George was riding shotgun when female professional golfer Rachel Connor was arrested for driving drunk in Sarasota, Florida earlier this morning. TMZ reports Connor, a British golfer, was initially pulled over for speeding and weaving in and out of traffic lanes. According to police reports, cops say they smelled alcohol as they approached the vehicle and upon asking, Connor admitted to having two vodka cranberries earlier in the evening.
Rachel Connor blew a.138 when given a breathalyzer test which is leaps and bounds over the legal .08 limit. While officers questioning Connor, police discovered a man sitting in the passenger seat who was later identified as the former Heisman Trophy winner. Eddie George was not arrested and took a cab back home. The two athletes were spotted at the same event earlier in the evening. Connor even tweeted a picture of them enjoying the festivities.
We wonder what Eddie’s wife, Taj of SWV, will say of this incident. She’s out promoting the new SWV record and he’s riding around in cars with drunk women. Sombody’s got some explaining to do.
