Reckless Driving in Virginia:  Da’Shawn Hand is an outstanding Defensive Lineman for the powerful Alabama Crimson Tide Football team.  Hand is one of the excellent cast of returning Defensive players for the Alabama team.  Last year, Hand played in all 15 games,  made 21 tackles, 2 quarterback sacks and 5 quarterback hurries.  Hand was also a preseason All-SEC pick by the sports media.  This arrest was just before the beginning of the first camp.  Alabama‘s first game will be against Florida State.

Reckless Driving in Virginia:  Unfortunately, Hand was arrested for DUI in late July, 2017.  Hand probably thought that he could reason with or satisfy the Officer by answering his questions and performing his roadside agility tests.  Hand was wrong.  The incentives are too great for Officers now to exercise much discretion in why they arrest.  If an Officer stops a vehicle and smells the odor of an alcoholic beverage, the driver is going to get arrested for DUI.

Coach Nick Saban was quoted as saying:  “This type of behavior is not acceptable and we are disappointed in Da’Shawn‘s actions,” “We are still gathering information and will evaluate what we need to do in terms of appropriate discipline as we move forward, so better choices and decisions can be made in the future.”
