Report: LB Abraham passed out at wheel
An officer found Arizona Cardinals Pro Bowl linebacker John Abraham passed out behind the wheel of his black Dodge Challenger at around 4 p.m. ET on June 29 at the intersection of an Atlanta suburb after he had left the Pink Pony strip club, according to the police report.
More details about Abraham’s arrest on a DUI charge in an Atlanta suburb emerged Tuesday, including that it took the officer “several” minutes to wake Abraham, whose speech was “very mumbled” and at time slurred, according to the report.
Abraham appeared confused and “rambled while speaking,” the officer wrote in the report.
Abraham said he had two drinks and told offers at the scene that he had been waiting on someone to pick him up but said that person never arrived. Abraham also said he didn’t feel safe to drive and didn’t want to drive, according to the report.
Abraham failed a series of field sobriety tests, including the walking and balancing tests. He also couldn’t recite the alphabet from C to X, according to the report, finally giving up. All of which led him to being arrested.
After initially agreeing to a breath test, Abraham changed his mind and refused to take it, the report stated.
An officer took Abraham’s South Carolina license, which was suspended.
