The DUI charge against Ravens QB Steve McNair that took place on May 9th was dropped on Tuesday, as the charge against his brother-in-law was reduced to reckless driving. McNair was just a passenger in his brothers pickup truck when it was pulled over, but McNair was charged becuase he allowed his brother to drive the vehicle. Jamie Cartwright, the brother-in-law, refused to take a breath test and was charged with drunken driving.
He will serve two days in jail and pay a $350 fine. “It’s good. I’m glad it’s over,” McNair said. McNair was arrested on DUI charges once before in Nashville in 2003, when he also was charged with illegal gun possession. But a judge dismissed those charges a year later, ruling police didn’t have sufficient reason to pull over McNair.
