    He should. If he wasn't "Tank Johnson," the Cops woulda called in a breathalizer instead of just taking him in immediately.

      Do you actually think police would recognize a guy like Tank Johnson? The vast majority of NFL players are unrecognizable by the average person.

        Yeah I do think police would, considering how much focus the NFL has put on him and Pac Man and their relationships with police. I wouldn't be surprised to see their pictures in every cop car like when you're banned from an amusement park or something and they have your picture with the words "don't let in." Only difference is the NFL players pics say "Arrest on site, no evidence neccessary."

          Yup...

          Good to see another terrible poster has joined the NFLDC ranks. I'm sure that police in Arizona have a picture of a random defensive tackle from the Chicago Bears posted in their car. I couldn't even pick Johnson out of a crowd and I'm a hardcore NFL fan.

              Oh well, he'll end up somewhere better anyways. My guess....

                tank refused a breathalizer, so he was taken to the station and they had to obtain a warrant from the judge to do a blood test, tank was very rude and took a bad attitude toward the police. In any case, driving is a priviledge, not a right and the police reserve the right to take away your priviledge at any moment if they find it necessary, you know like when you're felony speeding in their town, I know exactly where tank got pulled over and there is a lot of pedestrians crossing there at all times day or night, it's a hotspot for immigrants crossing back and forth, he should have slowed down. Why do you feel he was treated so badly, I would have been taken in the same had i refused a field sobriety test.

                  Field sobriety tests are terrible. It is very unlikely you will pass them regardless if you have drank or not. They are designed to get you to fail them.
                  I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

                    Um, Tank Johnson refused the breathalizer, and since the police likely had evidence of drunk driving, they had to take him for a blood test. And obviously there was evidence of drunk driving as he just barely passed it. And, this shows he was drunk before driving. And 15 mph over the speed limit is still breaking the law and a felony in Arizona. You know what, people can hardly give a **** if some people think 15 mph above the speed limit is nothing, cause it is Arizona's law. And Tank Johnson does make his living in Arizona so he should have obviously known this.

                    It amazes me how people are defending him like this. He broke the law people, and he could have very easily killed himself or several others out on the rode. And he is a big man people, for him to get his BAL up to .072, he must have drank a ********.

                      Please he was is all likelyhood over the limit while driving, he barely got under in a blood test which means he was higher when he was pulled over.

                        He could still be charged with a DUI, but probably won't.

                          He was close to .01 percent under the legal limit, with as big of a guy he was more than one drink under. The alcohol is a non-factor here, what he did was not illegal. His speeding was illegal.

                          It doesn't matter if he had to drink more than a normal sized person to get to his BAC level, he was the same level impaired as a small person who only needed 2 or 3 drinks to get to a .072.

                          In many states, if you refuse a breathalyzer you will automatically get taken in. I am guessing Arizona is one of those states.

                          15 over being a felony is absolutely ridiculous. I don't care if that is the law, that is far from being a severely dangerous amount over the limit. Hell 25 MPH over is pushing it.

                          Some of you people are so ******* hypocritical. He deserves to be fired because he had a legal amount of alcohol in his system and was speeding? Come on, if you drink alcohol and you are capable of driving a car, you will have done this, or you will in the near future.

                          Just about everyone has driven after having a few drinks. I would be willing to be a lot of money that almost everyone who drinks has driven when they are over the legal limit always.

                          Those in glass houses should not throw stones.

                            Yeah, you're right. Being almost drunk and speeding is nothing.

                            Hey, I have a question for you. What if Tank ran over a pedestrian? He very well could have. Just because he is barely under the legal limit doesn't mean he still isn't impaired, plus he was speeding at night. A person could be walking by, and he could have very easily ran over that person.

                              As long as we are getting into hypotheticals. What if you get into your car, start driving down the street, and it a kid that was crossing the street? I guess you should be arrested now because you might hurt someone. He did nothing illegal in regards to the alcohol. Millions of people do that every weekend, hell millions probably drive over the legal limit every weekend. Everyone who has ever driven a car has sped. He did nothing different than millions upon million of people do.

                              15 over is nothing, but if you have never went more than 15 over the speed limit, I will rescind my entire argument.(disclaimer:you have to be able to drive, with your naivite you seem pretty young.)

                              Now go ask anyone age 25 or older and ask them if they have ever driven after drinking a couple beers. Hell ask anyone that can drive, and has drank alcohol. I don't even have a car and I have driven drunk.

                              Have you ever driven while talking on a cellphone? There have been studies shown that your reaction time while talking on a cell phone is worse than if you are legally drunk.

                                That is where he was pulled over, in dowtown gilbert on a narrow street that you really need to do 25 at, not 40! on top of that, on the other side of that picture is a YMCA, which behind that is Gilbert Elementary. further south and you have Gilbert High School. The speed limit was set to 25 because it's a high pedestrian area at all times day or night, being slightly impaired and driving 15 over, which is felony, is going to get you pulled over. On top of that, refusing a field sobriety test and pushing things further out by about 2 hours, he barely was under the legal limit, had he tested on site he would have been over. Don't downplay the scenario unless you have all the facts and then go, "well i bet you've done it" not even once, I don't drink unless someone can drive, if they can't i call a cab, even if it's only a couple. az is crazy about dui enforcement, not worth the risk.
