Alec Ogletree may have cost himself millions of dollar with one boneheaded mistake.
The former Georgia linebacker was arrested for driving under the influence, according to Pro Football Talk. Ogletreeâ€™s agent told the website that Ogletree was pulled over â€ślast weekendâ€ť and cited for a DUI.
Ogletree was a likely first-round pick in Aprilâ€™s draft. He is a former safety turned linebacker whoâ€™s athleticism appealed to NFL teams.
This isnâ€™t the first time the former Bulldog has got in trouble. He was suspended four games during his junior season for failing a drug test. He was also arrested while at Georgia for stealing a scooter helmet his freshman year.
Ogletree will have some questions to answer at next weekâ€™s NFL scouting combine.
