What is it about fame and fortune that makes people wanna break the law??
Eagles' star Jason Peters has been arrested for allegedly DRAG RACING and then trying to evade cops! What in the hell is going through sports stars' minds??
They must not check you for common sense before making you a five-time Pro Bowler!
According to a local paper in Louisiana, a Sheriff’s Office deputy saw a white Camaro and a blue sedan in what appeared to be a race at 4:45 a.m., with the sedan pulling over when the deputy hit his lights. The Camaro driver, however, made the worst decision possible and led the deputy on a chase at speeds exceeding 100 mph before finally stopping at a shopping mall parking lot. That driver was allegedly Jason R. Peters!
Here's what the Eagles said:
“We are aware of the reports that Jason Peters was arrested this morning in Louisiana. We have been in contact with Jason and due to the legal nature of this matter, we will not have any further comment at this point.”
Give him the boot!
Sports stars need to learn that while their job involves playing a game, that does not give them the right to act unprofessional and unlike true representatives of the sport!
Before this, he was widely considered one of the best offensive linemen in the NFL. Now, who knows!
