Darren McFadden facing 2 charges for wild Whataburger incident
Texas prosecutors have come to a decision on charges for Darren McFadden, according to a TMZ Sports report.
You might remember, McFadden had one of the worst fast-food experiences imaginable in January. The former Arkansas standout and ex-Dallas Cowboys running back was allegedly driving drunk at a Dallas-area Whataburger on Jan. 21. Officers reportedly found McFadden asleep behind the wheel of a 2019 GMC Yukon which was in the drive-thru of the Whataburger. McFadden reportedly resisted the arrest in a way that led to his drive-side and passenger window being smashed. At the time, McFadden was booked on DWI and resisting arrest charges. TMZ Sports reports that prosecutors have decided to pursue charges of resisting arrest and DUI with a BAC of greater than or equal to .15.
In Texas, both charges are Class A misdemeanors, meaning each carries a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a $4,000 fine. The report says McFadden is due in court in October.
