Heyward-Bey receives three years’ probation for DUI charge

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey pleaded no contest Monday to a misdemeanor DUI charge in connection with his arrest on the Bay Bridge in April.

Heyward-Bey, 25, was pulled over at about 2 a.m. on April 7 on the lower deck of the bridge on his way back to the East Bay from a nightclub in San Francisco, his attorney Ivan Golde said.

He agreed to plead no contest in San Francisco Superior Court to the misdemeanor charge this morning in exchange for a sentence of three years’ probation, three months of DUI classes and various fines and fees.

Heyward-Bey had been pulled over after allegedly weaving and driving slightly above the speed limit in his 2012 Range Rover, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Prosecutors said a chemical test conducted at the scene found his blood-alcohol content was .13 percent, and a Breathalyzer test taken about an hour later found his BAC was still .12.

Golde had previously said there were “serious issues” with the case, but told Judge Samuel Feng today that seeking a trial on the charges would distract from with the Raiders’ upcoming season and “would be an undue hardship” on his client.

Heyward-Bey “wants to put this behind him,” Golde said.

Raiders players are scheduled to start reporting for the team’s preseason training camp this Sunday in Napa.

Heyward-Bey was Oakland’s top receiver last season, leading the Raiders with 64 receptions and 965 receiving yards, both career highs.

    LOL!!

    Victorino is of no concern, much more with Pence.

    He can hit, catch and throw.

    Head scratcher.

    Victorino can hit, catch & throw.

    He has a better arm than Pence too.

    Im no Dodger fan, cant stand them, but that statement isnt close to being true brother.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Debatable on the better arm, that’s why he’s in RF.

  • The Big Banana

    O, some aren’t smart enough to even do that much!

    I didn’t say he was a genius. I just said he’s smart enough to build and retain/grow wealth. Whether with the help of an advisor or not.

    Saw an opportunity, seized it like a good entrepenuer, built up his wealth, and now provides very well for his family. He’s not an idiot.

    Wow, the money they pay baseball players these days.

    Anyone know for sure when camp starts? Plenty of sites have it listed as Friday 7/27, but I’ve also read that Sunday is reporting day with Monday being first practice

    Steve – how about getting us some news?

  • DennisAllensVisor
  • guest123

    All Raiders report on Saturday. Meetings on Sunday. Monday is first practice.

  • RAIDERMAN99

    Gonna be interesting to see what approach DA and Tarver take this pre-season. Especially on defense.

    You’d want to see which guys are ‘getting it’ and try to project what may work best when the real bullets start flying.

    At the same time, you don’t want to give the Bolts any idea of what’s coming their way Monday nite.

    I suspect we’ll see a lot of looks but very little done off of them. Probably be more concerned about guys lining up correctly than anything else.

    TBB,

    I’m not saying they are idiots bro, but my point is that there is a lot of money in the entertainment business, and making/ being worth $100 million is not that difficult (you don’t have to be smart) when you make $20 million+ per year.

    Remember a couple yr.s back in wk.3 of the preseason when we got absolutely shellacked by the Saints? Brees threw for like 300+ in the 1st half?

    ********************

    Yup, and Jamarcus was fumbling and one-hoping passes as well.

    That was the game that prompted the Greg Ellis “this is not high school” tirade.

    Wish we could have played more relevant ball for Ellis, he was a good dude.

    ———–
    Yep, the Saints torched us in that pre-season game. Right after that game, I predicted they’d win it all that year and it happened, should put $$ on it.lol
