Sources are reporting that Dolphins wide out Chris Chambers passed a breathalyzer test after being arrested early Saturday morning in Charlotte for driving while impaired, reckless driving and speeding. The receiver was taken in at about 2:30am and later released on $1,750 bond. He will be in court today. As stated in a previous article, the arrest is the first time in Chambers’ tenure he has come under any legal trouble in his time in the league.
If it is true that Chambers passed the breathalyzer test, then it is unlikley that the league would hand down any sort of punishment against Chambers. If anything, the Dolphins may fine him for the arrest, but even that is uncertain at this point. The team has already had to deal with the arrest of new LB Joey Porter this offseason, as well as the two arrests and then release of defensive tackle Fred Evans.
On the surface it appears that Chambers simply made a bad judgement call on driving Saturday night, and that if he can prove he was not over the limit he most he would likely face is a fine for the violations.
