    Jerome Felton Suspended For The First Three Games

    I think this is for the DUI last year.
    3 sounds really high.

    Think we'll keep Line for a few weeks, or go with Ellison as a lead blocker?

    It looks like this is from last June

    three-game suspension stems from a June 2012 DUI arrest

    More on Jerome Felton's suspension

    Felton was first arrested on suspicion of a third-degree DWI, but the charge became a second-degree DWI because Felton had a previous DWI conviction within the last 10 years. That's an important part of this case, because it put Felton under the purview of the NFL's rules for repeat offenders -- even though the second DWI charge against him was dropped.
    "Absent aggravating circumstances, discipline for a first offense will generally be a fine of two-seventeenths (2/17) of the amount in Paragraph 5 of the NFL Player Contract to a maximum of $50,000. If the Commissioner finds that there were aggravating circumstances, including but not limited to felonious conduct or serious injury or death of third parties, and/or the player has had prior drug or alcohol-related misconduct, increased discipline up to and including suspensions may be imposed. Discipline for a second or subsequent offense is likely to be a suspension, the duration of which may escalate for repeated offenses."

    What a waste, the Vikes provoke car service. I've ridden with many of the drivers. Stories are plentiful.

    Felton is getting a three game suspension for a DWI charge that was dropped? I am against DWI, but if the charge was dropped, how could the NFL suspend him?

    A neighbor boy broke another neighbor's window in a garage last year. He was told he would not have to pay for this one, but he should pay for any future damage and told to be more careful. This summer, he and the other neighborhood kids were playing baseball, and another garage window was broken, so my neighbor called the boy's parents and asked that the boy pay for the damage. At that time, it was found that the boy had left the park before the window had been broken.

    If the charges were dropped, how come Felton has to pay for the broken window?
