Rams DE Robert Quinn arrested for DWI

NFL players have been making headlines recently and not for the right reasons.

St. Louis Rams DE Robert Quinn has joined that list after it was reported that he was arrested on July 10 at 6:44 a.m. for driving while intoxicated in Florissant, Mo. He posted bond and was released later that night, according to KSDK.com.

In addition to the drunken-driving charge, Quinn is charged with failure to exercise a high degree of care, and with having no insurance.

Quinn was drafted with the No. 14 pick last season after attending the University of North Carolina. He had 23 tackles and five sacks during his rookie campaign.

The Rams have issued the following statement:

    "The Rams and the NFL office are aware of the situation regarding Robert Quinn. We take such matters very seriously, and we will act accordingly once the legal process plays out."

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch and Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Eric Wright have been arrested this month as well for the same crime.

On June 13, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell  sent out a memo regarding the recent surge of DUIs around the league, warning the players of the consequences of their actions.
