Bears CB Tim Jennings was arrested for DUI and Speeding; Going 99 mph to a school event for kids

tim jenningsIn Gwinnett County, Ga. late yesterday morning, close to noon, Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings was arrested and charged with speeding, reckless driving, and, most damning of all, driving under the influence of alcohol according to Complex Sports.

At the time, Jennings was driving 99 m.p.h—the speed limit was 65. The officer’s suspicion of DUI arose from the fact that he could smell alcohol on Jennings’ breath, and that his eyes were bloodshot. Jennings did admit to drinking the night before, and said that he had been out until 2 a.m. However, he refused to comply with the arresting officer’s requests to submit to a breathalyzer test or a field examination, has since denied being under any sort of influence, and tweeted (then deleted) a statement proclaiming his innocence last night, which read: “I do apologize for speeding but DUI?? That’s not for me!! Sorry for speeding, guys.” 

Jennings was driving to a parent teacher conference for his kid, well……..
