Aaron Neary, a center on the practice squad for the Los Angeles Rams signed to their practice squad last week, was arrested for a DUI and a hit and run incident.
The arrest occurred after the Rams victory of the Arizona Cardinals 34-0 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Reported that Neary had hit a bus stop, trash can, and a mailbox and fled the scene. A witness to the accident called 9-1-1 and as the police spotted Neary and pulled him over.
Simi Valley PD perform a breathalyzer on Neary as his blood level was twice the legal limit of 0.08 that is allowed by the State of California.
Neary’s B.A.C. (Blood Alcohol Content) was at 0.17, at around 6:30 pm of his arrest and the Rams game just ended shortly before 4 pm. A question will surface on how did Neary's level reach so high in a two-hour period, such as was he drinking while on the sideline and locker-room?
Rams added Neary to their practice squad after he became available from being cut from the Cleveland Browns. To make room for Neary, Rams released Jeremiah Kolone, whom they may resign at a later date. The Rams are conducting their investigation to get to the bottom of what happened, and Neary is still part of the team.
