WR Dwayne Jarrett charged with DWI

Panthers wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett was arrested overnight and charged with DWI.

   The 23-year-old receiver, who has one touchdown in his career, was stopped by Charlotte Mecklenburg Police early Tuesday morning.

    Team officials said they are aware of the situation, but still gathering information at this time.

    Jarrett was also arrested for DWI in March 2008. Since it's his second such arrest, he could be subject to suspension from the league as well.

We'll have more details as they become available.

By hook or by crook....Armanti is going to get his chance! Hit the bricks, DJ!

Once is a mistake, twice is a habit... You'd think he'd learned his lesson the first time. Apparently not. Might be time to cut the ties with another USC bust.

Too bad, too sad. I think it's time to cut bait and look elsewhere. This kid just cannot handle the pressures of the NFL. Maybe the Panthers should consider shipping him off to Seattle for a 4th or 5th rounder. Maybe Pete Carrol can save this kid. I think the Panthers have had enough.

Great, Now he'll have to be benched,,,, Oh wait he already has been for three years now.

Posted by: Bart | Oct 5, 2010 7:52:00 AM

I'm actually worried about him. I can't imagine how frustrated he's been lately knowing his coaches have no faith in him. Say what you will about his play on the field, but at the end of the day he's still a 23 year old kid struggling to find his purpose on this team and in life. I hope he gets the help he needs before there's a more tragic ending to this story.

Bye Bye. Way past time.

2 career DUI's and 1 career touchdown. It's time to see what Armanti has.

Posted by: Jimmy#2 | Oct 5, 2010 8:11:08 AM

Well that's pretty much that. The Panthers have a history of cutting players who get into legal trouble not named Smith. I will be surprised to see Jarrett continue with the team. I feel bad for the guy and the way he has been used here but that's no excuse for taking others lives into your hands, twice. As someone said above once is a mistake twice is a problem. I hope he gets some help and a fresh start.

Now the Panthers have an out to cut him. Marty Hernia told Jarrett's agent last week that they did not want to trade him. Hernia and Fox and Richardson have a real problem with saying they make bone headed choices for players.

Time to cut him. He isn't getting it done on the field and now, he's causing trouble off of it. Give him his walking papers.

From reading the Braylon Edwards stories, the NFL has a league-wide designated driver program. All players have to do is call and they'll get a ride home. So there is absolutely no excuse for this.

Posted by: Gso Cats Fan | Oct 5, 2010 9:46:11 AM

It is no excuse - what he did was inexcusable (especially considering the NFL's driver program) - but the kid has to be depressed. He's gotten little time on the field, hasn't had great production when given the opportunity, and then he had to watch Sunday's film yesterday.

I do wish Jarrett the best, but the Panther's need to cut him. Maybe Richardson will open up that wallet and finally bring in a receiver with more than a year's experience who has produced. Until (if ever) that happens, welcome to the activated list Armanti Edwards.

Posted by: Jamie | Oct 5, 2010 10:52:05 AM

Shoulda traded him last week at his request while they had the chance. Probably could have gotten somebody last pick of the draft (Mr. Irrelivant) Now we couldn't give him away.

Boy that second pick we gave up for Armanti looks good right about now.

AJ Green next year with the first round pick (seeing that we will be picking in top 3)

Alshon Jeffery with the 3rd rounder (if and i mean IF he makes it to the third).

With that I might get up to watch a game! We suck and are looking worse everyday!

Sunday will be imbarassing offensively.

The defense should be salavating over the blue print that the Giants gave us on how to sack Cutler (An NFL record 10 times by four down lineman). We should atleast get 3 or 4.

Problem is the defense is going to be on the field the whole game. We cant hold the ball for only 10 minutes a game on offense.


Posted by: Chuck | Oct 5, 2010 11:44:16 AM

really it's just time to stop doing the same thing expecting different results. we stick with this guy time and time again and the result is more underproduction and now more of the same with his legal troubles. If we get on one knee and offer a rose, will Kenny Moore take us back?
