Former New England Patriots QB Ryan Mallett was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of DWI. Mallett recently accepted an XFL Commissioner Invite to be part of the XFL draft in mid-October.
According to a report by 40/29 News, the former Arkansas quarterback was arrested on suspicion of DWI in Springdale Arkansas Tuesday night. In the report, Lt. Jeff Taylor with Springdale Police said:
“Officers responded to an accident near the intersection of New Hope and 112 around 6:23 p.m. Mallett was taken into custody just before 7:00 p.m.”
According to bestofarkansassports.com he had a blood alcohol concentration of .08.
Mallett was part of the XFL’s Summer Showcase in Tampa Bay earlier this summer. Many had Mallett as a possible tier 1 franchise QB in the XFL. The arrest and given his past history with personal issues could put that in doubt.
Mallet played for Michigan in 2007 than at the University of Arkansas from 2008 to 2010. He was drafted in the third round of the 2011 NFL draft by the Patriots. He also played for the Houston Texans, and Baltimore Ravens.
