Orson Charles TE Ex-Georgia
Orson Charles graduated from Georgia with All-SEC honors and is currently Mike Mayocks #1 TE in next years draft, with the possibility of going in the first round. Until today.
Police found Charles car stopped in the middle of the road early Friday morning at around 3:00 AM. The officer flashed his high beams to get his attention and got out of the car thinking that the car might be disabled and/or the driver needed some help. When the officer got out Charles' car started moving, so the cop returned to the car and turned on the lights. Charles pulled into a nearby parking lot and parked. The officer noticed Charles smelled of alcohol. Charles took a field sobriety test which I'm sure he failed and ended up blowing a .095, over the .08 legal limit. Charles was then arrested on charges of DUI and Impeding Traffic Flow - Minimum Speed.
It's one thing to have a few drinks in the time period before the draft, but to get drunk and drive your car when there is so much money on the line has got to be telling to NFL scouts who should wonder now if he can stay out of trouble once he gets to the NFL.
