Adam Zimmer Assistant Coach Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas City Chiefs assistant linebackers coach Adam Zimmer, son of Cincinnati Bengals Defensive Coordinator Mike Zimmer, was arrested for driving while drunk Sunday night.
Zimmer was involved in a single car crash at approximately 9:00 P.M. Sunday morning. The accident was at an intersection and Zimmer was the only occupant of the vehicle. He was unharmed in the accident. Zimmer failed numerous field sobriety tests and was arrested on suspicion of DWI, and released on bond at approximately 2:30 A.M.
Zimmer and the Chiefs were already dealing with a lot of distractions and tragedies over the season while going 2-13, and the Jovan Belcher incident was apparently really hard on Zimmer. His father Mike had stated that Zimmer was really down regarding the incident and that he struggled to cope with it.
This is Zimmer's 3rd season with the Chiefs, and he had previously worked 4 seasons with the Saints.
