    Rams' Byrd arrested for DUI in Los Angeles

    By Jim Thomas
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    03/07/2007

    Rams tight end Dominique Byrd was arrested over the weekend on suspicion of driving under the influence in Los Angeles.

    Byrd, who played college ball at Southern California, was arrested near the Sepulveda Boulevard exit of the Highway 101 freeway -- about 20 minutes north of downtown Los Angles -- at 2:34 a.m. Sunday morning. He was released Sunday night.

    Leland Tang, a public information officer with the California Highway Patrol, confirmed the arrest Wednesday morning. Tang said no other details were available on the arrest.

    Byrd, 23, was a third-round draft choice by the Rams in the 2006 draft. He played in five games last season, catching two passes for 39 yards, including a 27-yard touchdown grab on Christmas Eve against Washington.

    Byrd already is facing charges for assault and armed criminal action for his alleged role in a Dec. 4 nightclub scuffle in St. Louis.

    You can't suspend a player for off the field incidents such as this. Byrd will still be a Ram this upcoming season.

    Okay... almost nothing.

    By the way, while the Rams can't suspend (without pay) Byrd for off the field conduct, they can cut him without giving a reason.

    My guess is that they won't give up on him quite yet.

    Too bad. It's sad that these young players don't learn early enough from the mistakes of others -- as these hadn't learned either.

    I so abhor, despise, and detest the so called alcohol industry. I know it generates billions and billions of dollars for the economy every year but ... oh, well, it's a lost battle. "Drink responsibly" is their best advice. Right.

    I had breakfast burritos but I've never heard of breakfast tacos; Texas, always have to be different.

    True, BUT, who's to say the team doesn't sign a FA TE or draft one in the later rounds. His job is less secure than it was at the end of the season.

    As Byrd's police blotter continues to grow, so does his risk factor. He just doesn't get it and I'm not sure he ever will. If he's not already on a very short leash, he should be.

    RR, I agree with you all up to the point where you blame the industry. It's not their fault. That's like blaming airplanes for airline accidents, guns for shootings, etc.

    If you can't be responsible for your actions, then I expect and look forward to you going to jail. Hopefully before someone else gets hurt.

    Talk about failing to protect your house. His back door is wide open especially with Randy McMichael available. Just another guy in the long list of Linehan aquaintances.:x
