Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Donald Washington faces four charges stemming from a Thursday traffic stop.
Training camp can't come soon enough for NFL teams. Players are getting arrested at a pretty high clip, and the latest to find himself in handcuffs is Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Donald Washington. He was pulled over for driving 86 miles per hour in a 65-mph zone, and things got only worse from there.
He's been charged with four separate misdemeanors stemming from the stop: Speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol, possession of marijuana and driving on a suspended license. Washington also had some crushed pills in his car, which are being tested. Depending on what they are, the charges against him could change. He was released after his court appearance on $20,000 bond.
Washington was a fourth-round pick for the Chiefs in 2009 and played in eight games in 2011. He was expected to compete for a roster spot but not have a chance to start in 2012.
