St. Louis Rams second-year defensive end Robert Quinn was arrested for driving while intoxicated on July 10.
St. Louis Rams defensive end Robert Quinn was arrested for driving while intoxicated on July 10 in the St. Louis suburb of Florissant, Mo. Though the arrest happened almost two weeks ago, the news was first reported on Thursday by a St. Louis television station.
Quinn was charged with a DWI and two other traffic violations. He was released from jail that night after posting his bond. Additional details of the arrest are not available at this time.
This is the first offense in the NFL for the second-year player, and he could avoid a lengthy suspension because of that. He was suspended at the University of North Carolina in 2010 for lying to NCAA investigators about taking improper benefits. That pushed his draft stock down in the 2011 NFL Draft, where the Rams were able to grab him with the 14th pick.
