Ruben Brown played in 9 Pro Bowls in a career that spanned 12 seasons with the Chicago Bears and the Buffalo Bills. Brown last played in 2007 after a three year stint with the Bears, and officially retired in 2009. Now, an off the field and out of the broadcasting studio arrest has him in the news.
Friday night Brown was involved in a car accident in which he rear ended another car. The car he ahd hit then proceeded to flip over. The other driver had minor injuries, and Brown was not hurt in the collision. Brown refused a breathalyzer and was arrested DWI, imprudent speed, and following too closely.
A witness had this to say about the incident:
"He smelled like alcohol, real bad. And he was slurring. I was just mad. I called the cops right away, and I told them, 'The guy seems drunk.' I didn't even know who he was at the moment."
