Ken Stabler, one of the all-time great quarterbacks for the Oakland Raiders, was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol. He was pulled over around 1 a.m. Sunday morning in Alabama for a traffic violation.

Stabler played in the NFL for 15 years, finishing up with the Oilers and then the Saints. He also had a pair of DUI’s stemming from arrests in 1995 and 2001.

And I’ll throw out this interesting tidbit because I can. While with the Saints, he was sacked by the Cowboys in the end zone for a safety. It’s the only time in NFL history that a team losing by one point, won by one point on a safety.

    I love how you guys rip on people with DUIs all the time and the advertisement directly under a DUI story is an ad for a DUI lawyer.

    I wasn’t ripping the Snake. But I do question the judgement of some of these guys who could have just called a cab.

    Regarding the ad though, that’s a Google ad. I think they pick up on text and place those ads accordingly.

    The irresponsible attitude & star studded status of our celebrities often lend them into more trouble. Of late more & more of them are falling for it. From Mel Gibson to Paris Hilton to Sean Kanan, WWE wrestler Andrew, Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora the list just goes on. There need to be some stopping of DUI, one of the most committed crime in US.
