Damon Evans: Massive self whammy

It's not just that Damon Evans has been charged with DUI. It's not just that he was charged with DUI because he was driving erratically and failed a field sobriety test.

It's not just that he was charged with DUI because he was driving erratically and failed a field sobriety test and refused a breathalyzer.

It's not just that he was charged with DUI because he was driving erratically and failed a field sobriety test and refused to take a breathalyzer and had some mysterious passenger with him who was also arrested for unknown reasons.

It's that the mugshot looks like this.

Joe: That's a doozy.

Me: I think Gen. McChrystal's available.


Update: The fact that Director's Cup standings came out this morning doesn't help, either:
Before finishing 18th last year, Georgia had been in the top 15 of the Directors’ Cup standings for 11 consecutive years, including top-10 finishes in eight of the 11 years. This year’s showing is Georgia’s poorest since finishing 28th in 1997.
Update: At the very least, we're going to need a new public service announcement for home games.

Update: This just gets more painful. From Mark Schlabach:
Evans, who played wide receiver at Georgia from 1988-92, received a five-year contract extension in February that raised his annual salary to $550,000. His new salary was set to take effect on Thursday.
Update: Channel 2 identifies the other person arrested as a 28-year-old woman who was charged with disorderly conduct. That's a relief. All day I've been dreading the moment when the phrase "male prostitute" would enter this story.

Of course, this woman is also not Damon's wife (see official bio), so this isn't exactly positive news.

This is the final update on this post. As the world knows, Damon is going to make a statement at 6:30 this evening. If I have anything "worth" adding to that, I'll do it in another post.

Is he falling asleep in the picture!? I want to know who the mysterious passenger was.
