Found August 30, 2012 on This Given Sunday:
PLAYERS: Kenny Britt
TEAMS: Tennessee Titans

Via This Given Sunday:

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt has been suspended one game for a July 20th DUI arrest. Britt tore his ACL last season and was just activated from the PUP list by the Titans on Tuesday. 

The DUI last month was Britt's eighth run-in with the police since being drafted out of Rutgers in 2009. The suspension might actually be a good thing, because it'll give Britt an extra week to rehab his knee, which was originally injured in Week Three last season. 

But the designation of just one game for Britt seems a little light in my opinion. Eight incidents off the field in three years, and he only gets one game for a DUI? I think that's a little off. Generally, the NFL doesn't even suspend players for a first-time DUI offense, instead just fining them. But for someone like Britt, a prior offender, one game seems a little light.
