You're an NFL player I'm sure plenty of people would have volunteered to give you a ride. There are also these wonderful people who pick you up and drop you off at home called taxi drivers. Damn ittttttttt.

Ya it is.

Schmitt was cooperative but failed a sobriety test at the scene and was taken into custody.

According to the report, Schmitt, 24, later submitted to another sobriety test, resulting in a blood-alcohol content of .151 and .161. The legal limit in the state of Washington is .08. Officers issued Schmitt a criminal citation for DUI and released him from custody.

Schmitt is scheduled for an arraignment July 8.

To be fair, he is from the heart of Wisconsin (Gilman), so a .15 or whatever is still considered on the light side.
