So what was Orson’s influence? Driving too slow smells of only one thing, and that’s that green sticky stuff you roll up and or put into items you would sell at a bake sale. Great timing for Charles who will likely hurt his stock in the draft after this incident. He still is a great talent and with the TE position becoming so valuable in the NFL, someone is going to brush aside this DUI, as long as it doesn’t become a trend. In other words he has a little over a month not to get arrested again.
