New Orleans Saints WR Joe Morgan Arrested for Drunk Driving

Benny Sieu-US PRESSWIRE

Morgan was found asleep at the wheel with a blood alcohol content almost three times the legal limit.

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Joe Morgan was arrested early Saturday morning for drunk driving in Jefferson Parish.

The Times-Pic appears to be the first outlet with the story and has all the dirty details:

A trooper happened upon Morgan sometime around midnight Saturday, asleep behind the wheel of his vehicle on the Earhart Expressway near Causeway Boulevard in Jefferson, the arrest report said. The trooper woke Morgan and had him step out of the vehicle.

But the trooper noticed Morgan seemed intoxicated, according to the report. He was swaying on his feet, smelled of alcohol and had unsteady balance and bloodshot eyes, the report said.

After Morgan performed poorly on a field sobriety test, the trooper arrested him and took him the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center in Gretna. Morgan's blood alcohol content registered 0.218 percent, more than twice the 0.08-percent legal limit, the arrest report said.

A records check revealed that Morgan did not have a valid driver's license, the report said. Morgan was booked Saturday at the Gretna jail. He was released the same day on a $1,150 bond

Yowza! A blood alcohol content of 0.218 is almost three times the legal limit!

The Saints have yet to comment on the situation, of course.

Really, really, really, really dumb move by Morgan, who is on the verge of doing great things and about to start what could be the most important season of his career.

Does this affect your opinion of Joe Morgan? And will this affect Joe Morgan's future with the Saints?
