Say it Ain't So: Dwayne Jarrett Arrested for DWI?

After receiving his second DWI in a short span of time, I can only imagine that Carolina Panthers wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett’s time in Carolina is limited. If it was hanging by a thread before; surely that thread has snapped.

On March 11, 2008 Jarrett was arrested for DWI where his BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) registered at .12.

A few short moths later Jarrett pleaded guilty to driving while impaired, and surrendered his driver’s license.

This time around when Jarrett was booked into Charlotte-Mecklenberg county jail around 2:08 am, he refused a breathalyzer test. However a blood kit was performed, of which the results will take several weeks to get back.

It’s not clear as to whether or not Jarrett will participate in Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears. I would venture to say that punishment should fit the crime, and he should be benched at the very least, if not released altogether. The time is now for the Carolina Panthers to find this knucklehead’s replacement. Word on the street is WR Demetrius Byrd is looking for a team to call home.

    Yeah I have been a supporter but this was the last nail. I will be very surprised if he plays. If Smith were healthy he might have been released already. I think the only chance he has to stay a little longer is they figure they have to keep him until the bye to give Smith time. I will be surprised if he finishes the week with the team and shocked if he gets past the bye.

      I’ve been hot-and-cold with the guy. Following poor displays, I’ve been in favor of releasing him, but after 24 hours or so I revert back to giving the guy more time. But I’m with you here; the guy just willingly ran himself out of opportunities. I’m guessing they’ll wait until his court date to make a decision. To me, why wait? They still have Trent Guy on the practice squad. My guess is they’d go there before signing an outside player.
