Bernard Pierce Drives Drunk, Says He Will Be Cut, Gets Cut
This story is what you might call a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Former (note this particular word) Baltimore Ravens running back Bernard Pierce was arrested at around 2am Wednesday morning when a Baltimore County police officer clocked his 2014 Ford Mustang going 55 mph in a 30 mph zone.
When the officer pursued, he noted that the Mustang was drifting between lanes, which is sometimes indicative of drunk driving. You can probably see where this is going.
When the officer asked for Pierce’s license and registration, Pierced confusedly asked, “What did I do again?” Do you think the scent of alcohol was heavy in the air at this particular moment? You bet it was.
Pierce failed the field sobriety tests and was promptly placed under arrest for DUI/DWI. His response? From the officer’s report:
“While Officer Kindervater was helping the defendant into the rear seat of his patrol vehicle the defendant asked if this incident could be kept off the books. Officer Kindervater explained that he was under arrest for DUI and that it couldn’t be kept off the books. The defendant advised he would take citations if it could be kept off the books. The defendant then slurred “Never mind.”
When en-route to precinct six the defendant uttered, “Do you know what happened the last time a Ravens player got a DUI? I’m getting cut tomorrow, not like you care.”
The end result of this whole affair? Pierce was cut today, and the officer, in fact, did not care one bit. Some advice, Bernard? Next time, don’t drink and drive. You ain’t special.
Just another reason to love the NFL!
