The Video from former Dallas Cowboys running back Darren McFadden has been released.
McFadden was arrested in January for a DWI and falling asleep at a Whataburger drive-thru. He has accepted a plea deal and served a four-day jail sentence. He reportedly already has been credited with one-day service.
He was charged with driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest. He was released after being taken into custody in Collin County on personal recognizance.
The footage shows that McFadden’s foot slipped off the brake at one point while he was sleeping and his car rolled into the side of the fast food restaurant. The former No. 4 overall pick only woke up after the officers smashed the window of his car and opened the door.
At that point is when McFadden began to resist arrest. The body cam footage shows that officers were eventually able to wrestle him to the ground, resulting in guns and tasers being pulled out.
According to TMZ, the 32-year old was charged with a BAC greater than or equal to .15.
This is the second major story about McFadden in recent years.
On July 3rd, 2017, McFadden had to issue a statement about the people injured in the shooting at a Little Rock nightclub. A television station posted a video that appeared to show McFadden at the club.
