Minnesota Vikings safety Jayron Kearse might be in some hot water after a recent arrest.
According to ESPN, Kearse was arrested Sunday morning by Minnesota’s state patrol after allegedly driving drunk. When police searched his vehicle, they also allegedly found a loaded weapon.
He was charged with fourth-degree DWI and carrying a firearm without a permit.
Obviously, Kearse is innocent until proven guilty. That’s our wonderful standard here in America, but this isn’t a great look for him.
The former Clemson player has made more than $2.5 million during his NFL career through his first three and a half seasons. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
There’s no reason for a guy with that kind of money to be allegedly driving drunk. Call an Uber! Call a friend!
Do literally anything other than allegedly getting behind the wheel while drunk.
The fact he was also allegedly stopped with a loaded gun just makes matters worse. Allegedly driving drunk is already stupid enough.
Doing it while reportedly strapped is on a whole different level of stupidity. I love guns, but everybody knows firearms and alcohol don’t mix.
