Demarcus Dobbs is the 2nd San Francisco California 49ers defender to be arrested this year, San Diego DUI lawyers say.
In January 2012, NFL sack leader Aldon Smith got popped for DUI in Miami, California drunk driving defense attorneys are told. Fortunately, Smith qualified in Florida for a program to reduce the charge to reckless driving. He also was stabbed at a house party in June and was involved in a rollover car accident in September.
Now, SF backup defensive end Dobbs was arrested for California drunk driving yesterday after he was involved in a solo vehicle accident with his 2011 Caddy. He was also charged with marijuana possession.
The alleged California DUI accident happened around 3:45 a.m. on southbound San Tomas Expressway in Santa Clara, where the 49ers have their practices. He was not hurt, and no one else was in the car. Dobbs agreed to a chemical test, the results of which are presently unknown.
Dobbs will not travel to St. Louis to play for Coach Harbaugh. Dobbs made the squad in 2011 after going undrafted out of Georgia, plays defensive end and tight end and is an important member of the 49ers' special teams.
