[Update 2: It's looking increasingly likely that this has all been just an unfortunate mix-up for Vontae. The Illinois paper that originally reported the story has now changed its report, essentially in what looks like an effort to cover its tracks (and its ass). Apparently, it appears that someone stole Vontae's wallet and was using his license and ID when he got pulled over. Kudos go to the Dolphins brass for immediately sticking up for Vontae in the press.]
[Update: According to PFT, the Dolphins are now disputing the reports that Davis was arrested. Stay tuned to find out what's really going on here.]
The offseason is always the danger zone when it comes to NFL players getting arrested. Miami has already had to deal with Randy Starks' laughable transgression from a month ago.
And now their newest first round draft pick is in trouble with the law.
On June 9, at 6:47 PM, Vontae Davis was arrested in Champaign, Illinois and charged with unnecessary vehicular noise and driving without a valid license. He will likely only have to pay a fine of up to $255.
Look, I'm sure a lot of people are going to angrily point fingers and shout that the team should have known better when drafting Davis since he had character concerns coming out of college.
Those people are overblowing the situation.
Please look again at what got him arrested. It wasn't late at night; there was no alcohol or drugs involved. Either he was playing his music too loud in the car or he knows Bubb Rubb:
Yeah, Davis should have been a little more careful, but this isn't anything to worry about.
