Buccaneers OT Jeremy Trueblood was arrested in Greenfield, Ind., late Tuesday night on the suspicion of disorderly conduct but was released this morning with no charges filed against him.
According to police, Trueblood and a friend, Benjamin McKenny, played golf at a local course Tuesday but felt they were too intoxicated to drive. They called Trueblood’s mother, Wanda, who picked them up from the course to drive them home.
The St. Petersburg Times has the rest of the story:
On the way, they stopped at a local gas station, and that's where (police spokesman Derek) Towle said the problem initiated. The clerk there called police, accusing two customers – said to be Trueblood and McKenny – acting disorderly. The clerk said they were knocking items off shelves, throwing cup lids and bumped into a woman holding a small child.
When the clerk saw them get into a car and drive away, he reported a possible case of drunk driving. An officer was dispatched and stopped the vehicle, though it was determined by officers that Trueblood's mother was not drunk.
Police planned to issue citations because the car's occupants weren't wearing seat belts, but that's when officers allege McKenny and Trueblood became uncooperative.
Trueblood has started the past 61 games for Tampa Bay at RT. In May, he signed a one-year, $1.7 million contract as a restricted free agent.
