Heyward-Bey arrested, charged with drunken driving

Raiders starting wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey was charged with drunken driving by the San Francisco’s district attorney office as a result of his arrent last month, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Heyward-Bey reportedly was arrested on the Bay Bridge by the California Highway Patrol about 2 a.m. on April 7 after he was observed speeding and weaving.
“The team is well aware of the situation, and takes matters such as this very seriously,” the Raiders said in a press release. “The organization will continue to gather specifics, and continue to cooperate with all parties involved.”
After being pulled over in his Range Rover, Heyward-Bey, 25, failed a field sobriety test, the CHP told the Chronicle’s Matier and Ross. He was cited for alleged drunken driving and later released.
Heyward-Bey was “very cooperative” during the traffic stop, according to the report. His blood-alcohol level was not revealed. In California, 0.08 percent is the threshhold for drunken driving.
Heyward-Bey is scheduled to appear in court May 31.
He enjoyed a breakout season last year in which he amassed 975 yards receiving. He led Raiders receivers in receptions (65) and yards last season.
Heyward-Bey could not be reached for comment.

    Speaking of props Raiderdave, i’m still laughing at your post about Beech needing to see a Dr. if his tenders resemble a Ruffles potato chip.

    Yeah, even I gotta say that was pretty good.

    RD, Ha. I had to let you know a good one like that did not go unnoticed.

    On another note wouldn’t it be weird if San Diego moved to LA and the city of San Diego panics from the loss of thier beloved Chargers and offers Mark Davis a kings ransom to come to…San Diego.

    Never mind…I didn’t just say that.

    So the Raiders top draft picks for the last few years shakes out like this…

    Russell – Mr.Purple Drank – Bust
    McFadden – Mr.Turf Toe – Only plays 1/2 the games each season
    DHB – Mr.No officer, I haven’t been drinking tonight – Won’t be on the team after this year.
    McClain – Mr.Say hello to my little friend – slow, weak, and dumb

    Good Lord what a mess. Reggie will get it turned around, but it might take a few years.

    Well I’m outta here Gents. Gotta a twelve and a half pound duece trying to bust loose. Maybe I’ll box it up and ship it off to the Smithsonian. Might even garner a few bill for it.

    Carolina made it to the NFC Championship game their 2nd yr. of existence…an expansion team.

    Reggie has a fairly young team with consecutive .500 seasons.

    If he’s as good as alot of people think it shouldn’t take him a few yrs. Imo.

  • Violent Hands

    The dissin R.McClain takes in this blog is kinda out of whack …slow weak and dumb???

    Last i knew MLB dont need blazing speed and should not be chasing #1WR on one leg

    Weak? when he didnt play,the defence was terrible,so to call him weak dont quite add up..Blackstock is weak

    Dumb? so one of the smartest defensive players to ever be drafted is all of a sudden dumb within 2 years lol?

    Im not giving up on any Raider player after 2 years and especially not McClain hes never been used in a scheme that benefits him or puts him in position to really succeed but with the transitioning/mixing of 3-4 his added maturity and a blitz crazy HC we will see
