Chargers OLB Antwan Applewhite Arrested on DUI Charges

We've all been there, haven't we? You're out of work or school long enough on (forced) vacation and you end up just drinking to pass the time.  I imagine that's what a bunch of these NFL players are dealing with, so it doesn't really come as a shock that another Charger has been involved in an alcohol-related offense.

Antwan Applewhite was pulled over at 2:23AM Friday morning in Pacific Beach and was determined to be driving under the influence and arrested.  He was booked and his bail set at $2,500, and his court date scheduled for June 17th. He had a female companion with him that was given a ride to another location – likely her home.

The Chargers released the following statement:

It’s disappointing to hear about the issue involving Antwan Applewhite. We’ll continue to monitor the situation and let the legal process run its course.

In a cruel twist of irony, he was a Criminal Justice major at San Diego State.

Applewhite was a restricted free agent this year, and was already considered a fringe player. Given AJ Smith's history of not wanting to deal with off-the-field issues, Applewhite is all but guaranteed to be leaving the team soon.
