EDIT: Okay, scratch that minor note thing. The Trib has more on the story, and, well, yeah it's not good:
For starters, the accident was not him striking another a car - it was striking a person...and it appears serious.
And then there's this:
A tow truck driver with McGann and Chester caught up with the sedan near 18th Street in the South Side and followed it until the sedan's driver parked on Sarah Street, where arriving police officers ordered the driver out of the car.
The driver, identified as Douglas, stumbled from the sedan and nearly fell, according to the affidavit. His breath smelled strongly of alcohol, and officers had to help him stand, the affidavit states.
"Hey I play for Pitt football. ... Please don't arrest me," Douglas told the officers, according to the affidavit.
Douglas' eyes were also bloodshot and glassy.
