Rams safety T.J. McDonald arrested for suspicion of DUI

Los Angeles Rams safety T.J. McDonald was arrested Tuesday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence of a substance other than alcohol. McDonald, 25, was arrested after officers encountered McDonald, who apparently collided with a parked car. An investigation revealed McDonald was driving under the influence, but "it wasn’t alcohol," according to police. McDonald was booked on suspicion of violating a section of the vehicle code that stipulates ,"It is unlawful for a person who is under the influence of any drug to drive a vehicle." McDonald was held on $300 bail. He was released at 6:23 p.m. and has a June 3 court date, according to the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. website. The Rams released a statement. “We are aware of the incident involving T.J. McDonald this morning," the Rams said. "We are gathering information and will have no further comment at this time.” Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
