Former NFL cornerback Vontae Davis was arrested Saturday by the Florida Highway Patrol and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, according to Broward County arrest records.
Davis reportedly crashed his vehicle into a disabled car on the side of the highway, which hit a person next to it. When police arrived at the scene, they reportedly found Davis asleep on the side of the road.
Davis claimed he was driving home from a club, where he had two mixed drinks. The person Davis allegedly struck was taken to a hospital with “multiple injuries.”
A former first-round pick of the Dolphins in 2009, Davis spent his first three seasons in Miami before a 2012 trade sent him to the Colts. Davis made a brief and controversial appearance with the Bills in 2018 by signing as a free agent in the offseason, but then retiring at halftime of the season opener.
Davis was selected to consecutive Pro Bowls in 2014 and ’15, a pair of seasons when he combined for eight interceptions, 34 passes defended, and two forced fumbles. He’s the brother of former star tight end Vernon Davis.
