Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Ventell Bryant, 23, was arrested for a DUI back on March 11th around 2:30 in the morning in Tampa, Florida. While the matter winds its way through the court system, the arrest video and field sobriety test administered on Ventell has now come out via TMZ.
As you can see in the video, it doesn’t seem like Ventell did that bad on the three tests the officer gave him, but nonetheless cops took him off to jail anyway. Apparently Ventell admitted to having three margaritas before getting behind the wheel, and that’s pretty solid evidence alone. Police also described Ventell as having bloodshot eyes, and they say he smelled like alcohol.
When Ventell realized he was about to be arrested, he can be heard saying, “I can’t afford this bruh!” He also had a couple buddies with him that protested a bit, but it was clear they couldn’t help him. When they asked the cop what tests he failed, the cop replied, “every single last one of ’em.”
Just remember, field sobriety tests aren’t designed to work out for the accused. We’ll keep an eye on this situation- until the next time it drips…
