Kenny Stabbler On Third DUI

Kenny Stabler, the former NFL football star and Crimson Tide broadcaster was pulled over for a traffic violation and charged with DUI.

From ESPN.

Police said the Foley, Ala., native was pulled over for a traffic violation on Alabama 59 and charged with DUI. Stabler, according to authorities, was taken into custody early Sunday at about 1 a.m. Robertsdale assistant police chief Brian Middleton said Stabler posted $1,000 bond and was released from jail.

Al.com brings up his previous charges.

Prior to Sunday's arrest, Stabler had been charged with DUI on at least two previous occasions. In 2001, he pleaded guilty to drunken driving after being arrested in Orange Beach. Stabler entered that plea as part of a deal whereby the police dropped drug and reckless driving charges. Also, in 1995, the former quarterback pleaded no contest to a DUI charge in Escambia County, Fla.

Roll 'Bama Rol Also mentions his past record.

If you remember "The Six Beer Challenge " diary from about three months ago, you'll remember that Ken Stabler was singled out as perhaps the hardest drinker to ever wear the crimson and white.

They go on.

None of this is shocking, mind you. As mentioned earlier, Stabler has long been a notorious drinker. Once when asked about his divorces he reasoned, "All I wanna do is drive around in my truck and drink Jack Daniels... and they just don't understand." Again, no shock. It should be pointed out that this is Stabler's third DUI arrest, his first coming in 1995 and his second coming in 2001 when he was working as the Alabama color commentator.

If he's kept his job this long they obviously respect hard drinkers more than they respect safe drivers in Alabama.
