Joe Cullen, an assistant coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars finally went out and talked about his arrest he had when he was a defensive line coach for the Detroit Lions. Specifically, he was arrested for driving through a Wendy's drive through drunk -- and naked -- the night before a game. Even more specifically, he doesn't remember it:
“Well, it’s simple; it’s called a blackout, so I don’t know,” Cullen said to the Florida Times-Union, “When you have a blackout, bang. You realize through being educated [about alcohol consumption] that you drink too much. I’m sure there’s a lot of incidents out there where people don’t remember a thing they did the night when they were drinking. That’s basically what happened.”
8 days following that incident, he was arrested for DUI, and while coaching at Ole Miss he was arrested for Public Intoxication for passing out at a sandwich show waiting for his food. So to say he had an alcohol problem was an understatement, but he states that he has been sober for 3 1/2 years. He told the Florida Times-union, "I made a promise to myself that alcohol and I weren’t going to be teammates any more." Thats a hell of a lot more dedication than I have, me and alcohol have games this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. I can't leave my teammates behind, what are they without me? They'll never win.
