After DUI Arrest, Georgia AD Damon Evans Poses For Mugshot To End All Mugshots
Oh dear. That ain’t good.
In what may turn out to be known as the Day of the DUI given Chris Simms’ marijuana-fueled joyride, Georgia Athletic Director Damon Evans was also busted late Wednesday by police for driving while under the influence. Only in his case it wasn’t the dankety dank cheeba that got him, but sweet, sweet liquor instead. Via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
A Georgia State Patrol trooper pulled over Evans, in his 2009 BMW, shortly before midnight at Roswell Road and Chastain Drive.
“The trooper made the traffic stop after observing the manner he was driving,” said Gordy Wright, the state patrol spokesman. “He got him stopped, detected an odor of alcohol, administered field sobriety and determined he was less safe to be driving.”
The trooper arrested him on charges of DUI and failure to maintain his lane, and took him to the Atlanta city jail. Evans refused to take a breath test, Wright said.
A sad, embarrassing situation to be sure, but it gets even worse, especially after SPORTSbyBROOKS pointed out that Evans filmed an anti-drunk driving spot which is played before all Bulldogs home football games:
