Darius Ashley gets second DUI

New, 41 comments

Louisville cornerback Darius Ashley picked up his second DUI in seven months after he rear-ended a police officer's car at Second and West Chestnut streets early Saturday morning.

His blood-alcohol level was 0.186 percent, more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent. Ashley was also arrested in December after police said he was found drunk and passed out in a restaurant drive-through.

One DUI can sometimes be understandable, but two generally means there is a real problem. I knew there might be a serious issue here when I heard multiple stories about him being highly intoxicated at a bar the weekend after his first DUI. He was suspended at that point in time, and ultimately stayed home while the team traveled to St. Petersburg for the Beef O'Brady's Bowl.

Ashley, a former running back, intercepted two passes and recorded three sacks as a sophomore and figured to have a solid chance of stepping into the No. 1 corner shoes left by Johnny Patrick. Now, I'll be extremely surprised if he hasn't worn a Cardinal uniform for the last time.
