Miguel Cabrera led things off for our LBS Nut Bag feature when he was “sacked” for smiling during his mugshot after being arrested for a DUI. Early Sunday morning, Utah linebacker Nai Fotu joined him. Fotu was arrested for DUI after police stopped him for driving in the wrong direction on the highway. It goes without saying that he was completely shattered, but the video and audio taken by the dash cam in the cruiser is priceless.
Deadspin also shared with us that Fotu already had a warrant out for “giving false personal information to police, unlawful possession of alcohol or a controlled substance by a minor and public urination following a March 2009 incident” at the time of his arrest. Apparently some people just don’t get it. Check out the arrest video and enjoy some of the brilliant comments made by Fotu as he was undergoing a field sobriety test.
Fotu’s blood alcohol was reportedly three times the legal limit, so I guess we can’t blame him for having no idea what was going on. I thought football players were big enough guys that they would have a high tolerance, but Fotu said he only had one or two beers. I believe him, don’t you?
