Too many Applewhite Martinis, Antwan arrested for suspicion of DUI

Outside linebacker Antwan Applewhite was arrested on Friday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence. According to 10 news, Applewhite was pulled over at 2:23 am down in PB and was given a DUI eval. He was then arrested after the evaluation.

The Chargers released this statement:

It’s disappointing to hear about the issue involving Antwan Applewhite. We’ll continue to monitor the situation and let the legal process run its course.”

It definitely is disappointing to hear that another Chargers player was arrested for driving under the influence. We are supposed to have high character players on this team and there is a program that the players can use to get a ride if they needed. Maybe the program is not active with the lockout… who knows.

    In a time when we are not even sure if there will be a next season and coaches are already frustrated, don’t you think now would be a good time to screw that head on a little bit tighter? No offense to Antwan because don’t get me wrong, he put forth some solid games this past season and started 13 of them.

    But on a real note, it is getting a little bit tiring of hearing about our players winding up in trouble. It seems like not to long ago Mr. Legedu Naanee was roaming around around drunk and was arrested.

    I will agree with the San Diego Tribune and say that I believe this could just be enough to cost him his spot on the Chargers roster. The last thing San Diego needs right now is more suspensions and legal issues. What do you think happened to Tim Dobbins and Legedu Naanee when they got in trouble. RELEASED. Thanks for the solid effort last season and best of luck Mr. Applewhite!

    seriously wanted to write so much more about this stupid situation, but had to pump it out and was rushed with so much happening today.

    applewhite pretty much is done with that stupid move. he is a free agent right now and he just HURT his chances of staying on the team. He shouldnt be the starter on the team, but he did fill in fine when we dropped lights out and larry glass was sitting on the sidelines.

    hopefully antwan barnes is brought back. he provided a good pass rush and contributed on special teams.
