Tennessee Titans wide receiver Chris Davis was arrested and charged with driving under the influence early Friday morning, according to Metro Nashville Police.
Davis, 25, was stopped at approximately 2 a.m. on Broadway near 11th Ave., after Officer Shawn Taylor spotted his 2007 Cadillac Escalade speeding, doing approximately 44 mph in a 30 mph zone.
Davis, according to report issued by the police department, had an odor of alcohol on him, and consented to a breath alcohol test, where his level was detected at .11, over the legal limit of .08.
The Titans left Thursday to face the Dallas Cowboys tonight at 7 p.m., but Davis, as is often the case with injured players, did not make the trip. Davis, who is fighting for a roster spot as a punt returner and backup wide receiver, suffered a hamstring injury in the preseason opener against Buffalo back on Aug. 9.
Davis' bond was set at $5,000.
“We are aware of the situation and we are gathering facts at this point,” a Titans spokesman said in a statement.
Taylor is the same Metro officer who had pulled over then-Titans quarterback Steve McNair for a DUI in 2003, only to have the charges eventually dismissed on a technicality. Taylor also pulled over McNair and Sahel Kazemi in early July, arresting her as the driver of the vehicle on a DUI charge just two days before the two were involved in a murder-suicide.
