This sure is a story you don’t see everyday. A little know LPGA and Futures Tour player named Rachel Connor was pulled over on Wednesday morning and arrested because of drunken driving in Florida. 

According to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, the 21-year-old golfer was stopped at 2 a.m. and blew a .133 and .137, and while that is somewhat news because of her status as a pro golfer, maybe the most interesting thing about the story was who was in the passenger seat. 

Former Tennessee Titans running back Eddie George was riding shotgun next to the England national team member. George was not detained. 

The picture to your right was tweeted by Rachel earlier in the night at the Archie Griffin Celebrity Golf Classic with the caption “The Lovely Eddie George.”

George, the former Heisman Trophy winner, recently published a book with his wife Tamara titled Marriage For Real

A bunch of people I've never heard of were driving drunk.  Stop the presses.

Hope that removes him from Sirius Radio

He added nothing to the college show hosted by Mark Packard.   This might be a blessing in disguise...hope we don't have to listen to him next year.

     Hmmm, probably not the only thing she blew that night.  Interesting to see if "The lovely Eddie George" will be coming out with a book about divorce in the future.

Would loved to have heard Eddie's first words when the cops first lit the cherries to pull the car over. In any case I'm sure it can all be easily explained.
