    It's just a DUI, that's like a speeding ticket now a days.

    I don't think they'll care. Heck, Finnegan got one right after he was drafted as a 7th rounder.

    Not really breaking news since it happened in January. I would think the Titans already knew about too. So I wouldn't turn it into a big deal

    The attorney for Titans linebacker Moise Fokou said Friday he believes Fokou is innocent of a DUI charge he received February in Washington, D.C.

    A blog in the Washingtonian.com on Friday said Fokou was pulled over at about 3 a.m. “on a Friday in January” after a U.S. Park Police officer witnessed him driving at a high rate of speed and across the solid double yellow lines on 14th Street near McPherson Square.

    After administering a field sobriety test on Fokou, the officer placed Fokou under arrest, according to the Washingtonian report. Fokou was taken to a Park Police station, where he declined to take a breath alcohol test.

    Fokou was charged Feb. 4 with driving under the influence of alcohol or a drug and operating a vehicle while impaired. Fokou pleaded not guilty and has a case scheduled for trial on Oct. 22, which is during the Titans’ bye week.

    His attorney, Mark Schamel of Womble Carlyle in Washington, D.C., , said he disputes the charges.

    “I think Moise is an amazing and talented young man and I think when this case is over, he’s going to be cleared,” Schamel said. “This guy is going to be an absolute credit to the Nashville community. He’s a great guy.”

    In a statement, the Titans said “ we are aware of the report and we will let the legal process conclude before commenting further.”

    Fokou signed a two-year, $2.8 million contract with the Titans in March.

    Asked if the Titans knew about the incident when Fokou signed, a Titans spokesman referred to the team’s statement.

    Fokou, who has been working toward completing his degree at the University of Maryland, had not had any previously publicized legal incidents.
