Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From “Darren McFadden Charged With Allegedly Resisting Arrest And Driving Under The Influence”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Back in January, the former NFL superstar, who played for the Raiders and Cowboys, was arrested after he was allegedly found asleep at the wheel in the drive-thru in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, according to TMZ. He also allegedly resisted arrest during the confrontation. Now, we know what might happen to him in response. (RELATED: Former Dallas Cowboys Star Arrested For Alleged Drunk Driving Incident.

Now, TMZ Sports has learned prosecutors have finally hit Darren with charges for the altercation — charging him with resisting arrest and DUI with a BAC of greater than or equal to .15.

Not a great look for our guy McFadden. Not a great look at all. He used to torch NFL defenses, and now he’s allegedly driving under the influence and resisting arrest.

If there was ever an example of a fall from grace, I’d think this would about sum it up in a perfect way.

I’m honestly surprised he’s only facing two years on these charges. In Texas, I would have assumed resisting arrest would have carried one hell of a stiffer penalty than a grand total of two years if pinned with a DUI conviction.
