Owen Schmitt is lucky he didn't join Leonard Little or Donte Stallworth among the NFL's ranks of drunk manslaughtering killers Saturday night. According to Danny O'Neil over at The Seattle Times, Schmitt was pulled over for speeding and then blew .151 and .161 on two breathalyzer tests. That's twice Washington's legal limit for those scoring at home.
This time, this clip is unfortunately for one of our own:
In addition to the recklessness of his actions, Schmitt did this IMMEDIATELY after Roger Goodell suspended Stallworth indefinitely for his DUI-related snuffing of another human life. In addition, Goodell sent a message of warning to all NFL players about DUI. Cripes, Owen. On top of everything else, bad timing, dude.
Expect a substantial suspension, if Schmitt is still in the league this fall.
Personally, I say cut his ass and give Justin Griffith his snaps.
