Former Patriots star Malcolm Butler arrested

Malcolm Butler, the NFL star who famously helped the Patriots win Super Bowl XLIX with a last-minute interception was arrested in Rhode Island earlier this month. 

 

Documents obtained by TMZ showed that Butler was thrown behind bars back on March 16 after officers said he displayed signs of driving drunk during a traffic stop.

 

According to the North Providence Police Department, they initially pulled his white Mercedes-Benz over at around 3:22 AM after he allegedly blocked traffic while stopped in a travel lane.

Butler reportedly said he hadn’t been drinking as he was coming from a studio where he had been making music.

Police officers however said a strong odor of alcohol emitted from his breath. They also said his speech was “extremely slurred” and he had “severely bloodshot watery eyes.” Cops wrote in the documents that he was “sweating profusely in the face” as well.

After Butler refused to perform field sobriety tests, they arrested him and booked him on a charge of DUI. He’s due in court for a hearing on the matter later this week.

 

Butler played in the NFL from 2014 to 2020, last suiting up for the Titans. The 34-year-old won two Super Bowls in his career, and amassed 17 interceptions and 406 combined tackles in 100 total games.
