Antwan Applewhite LB San Diego Chargers
San Diego Chargers linebacker Antwan Applewhite, who I will now call AA, was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving after getting pulled over at 2:23 this morning as reported by 10 News. The officers then gave him a DUI evaluation, which he then failed. No details regarding this arrest have been released at this time.
Applewhite, who was a Criminal Justice major, spent his college days at San Diego State before signing a undrafted free agent contract with the Chargers. He bounced around the practice squad before getting lifted to the active roster to replace an injured Shawne Merriman in 2008. Last year he started 13 of 16 games and accumulated 3 sacks and 48 tackles.
Update: The Chargers have released a statement regarding Applewhite's arrest:
“It’s disappointing to hear about the issue involving Antwan Applewhite. We’ll continue to monitor the situation and let the legal process run its course.”
