McNair, Lawyer Seeking DUI Dismissal


Baltimore Ravens quarterback Steve McNair is scheduled to appear in Nashville, TN today on a driving under the influence by consent charge, along with his brother-in-law, Jamie Cartwright, who was arrested on a DUI charge, reports The Tennessean.  “I think there is a very good chance to get it worked out as far as the driver is concerned,” said Roger May, McNair’s lawyer.  “If that occurs, then Mr. McNair’s case will be dismissed.”

It initially appeared that McNair’s case would be dropped on May 30; a clerk for the criminal court in Nashville announced that McNair’s DUI by consent charge had been dismissed and that the DUI charge against his brother-in-law had been reduced to reckless driving.  But the district attorney decided to review the agreement, resulting in both cases being delayed until today.  May said yesterday that he has never been given a reason for the delay.  McNair was arrested May 9 in Nashville on a misdemeanor charge commonly referred to as DUI by consent that prohibits a vehicle owner from letting the car be driven by someone who is inebriated
