Former NFL cornerback Vontae Davis was arrested in Florida for driving under the influence and causing a crash that resulted in a pedestrian being taken to the hospital.
A spokesperson for the Florida Highway Patrol told TMZ that first responders arrived at the scene of a two-vehicle crash on State Road 821 on Saturday, February 4, around 7:51 a.m.
One of the first things they noticed was significant damage to the front and rear of Davis’ black Tesla, while a bronze pickup, a Toyota, suffered rear-end damage.
Former NFL cornerback Vontae Davis, 34, was arrested for DUI in Florida on Saturday morning.
Davis played 10 NFL seasons for the Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills and Indianapolis Colts.
Police later said in their incident report that Davis, 34, had lost control of his vehicle and caused the accident. Authorities also reported that there was enough force in the collision for the truck to run over a nearby pedestrian.
The pedestrian was immediately taken to the hospital with multiple injuries. The identity of the person has not yet been released by local police.
The Florida Highway Patrol also said they later found Davis lying on the side of the road, sleeping. The former Miami Dolphins, Indianapolis Colts and Buffalo Bills player played 10 seasons in the NFL from 2009 to 2019.
When police interacted with Davis, they alerted him that his eyes were bloodshot and noted that the former professional athlete was leaning against a barrier to stay upright.
Davis (seen at the Colts) was found asleep after indirectly causing injury to a pedestrian.
Davis was placed under arrest after refusing to take a field sobriety test. His bail was set at $500.
Officers asked Davis if he had consumed any alcohol, to which he replied: ‘Yes, I had two drinks. Two mixed drinks.
Police then asked Davis to take a standard field sobriety test, but the 2009 first-round draft pick refused, saying, “No.”
Ultimately, he was placed under arrest and booked for DUI in Broward County. Bail for him was set at $500.
