Report: Oakland Raider Michael Bush arrested on DUI – Tri

Raiders running back Michael Bush was arrested Saturday for suspicion of driving while intoxicated in southern Indiana, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal.

Bush, 26, was pulled over for a traffic violation in Jeffersonville, Ind., at 3:47 a.m., and Clark County police Maj. Chuck Adams told the Courier-Journal that Bush was booked into the Clark County jail and released on his own recognizance at 1 p.m.

Raiders senior executive John Herrera declined to comment.

Bush rushed for a career-high 655 yards on 158 carries, scored eight touchdowns, and teamed with Darren McFadden to help give the Raiders the NFL’s second-ranked running game this past season.

Pending a collective bargaining agreement, Bush is scheduled for free agency this offseason. The Raiders drafted him in the fourth round in 2007.

Redskins: Defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth has been formally charged with misdemeanor assault stemming from a road rage incident earlier this month. Fairfax County police say Haynesworth and his attorney appeared at a police station in Reston, Va. Saturday morning. Haynesworth, 29, signed a summons warrant charging him with assault and left. He’s scheduled to appear in court on March 31.

The encounter that led to the charge occurred Feb. 2. Police said a 38-year-old man told investigators he was assaulted by the driver of a pickup truck who was tailgating him. The driver was later identified

as Haynesworth. Haynesworth’s agent, Chad Speck, has said the player is innocent and that his accuser is seeking fame and money.

  • Redskins kick returner Brandon Banks and a close friend were stabbed early Saturday during an altercation outside a downtown Washington nightclub. Banks received a surface wound to his side that required stitches and was expected to be released Sunday from an area hospital, his agent James Gould said in a statement. The player’s unidentified friend was critically injured and underwent surgery, Gould said. The suspect — Jason Shorter, 24, of Lanham, Md. — was arrested and charged with assault with intent to kill, police said. According to Banks’ agent, the friend was attacked first and Banks was injured while coming to his aid. Banks was not implicated in any wrongdoing, Gould said.

    Titans: New coach Mike Munchak has filled one of the biggest openings on his staff by hiring Jerry Gray away from the University of Texas to become Tennessee’s defensive coordinator. Gray was hired by Texas, his alma mater, to be defensive backs coach and assistant head coach to Mack Brown last month. Gray flew into Nashville on Friday to interview for the job. He spent last season as secondary coach at Seattle. He replaces Chuck Cecil, who was fired in January a week before the Titans parted with head coach Jeff Fisher.

    Jaguars: The team hired Cincinnati’s Mike Sheppard to replace Todd Monken, who returned to college football last week as Oklahoma State’s offensive coordinator. Jacksonville promoted Monken to QBs coach in January, after Mike Shula took the same position with the Carolina Panthers. Sheppard, who has 17 years of NFL coaching experience, spent the past four seasons coaching receivers for the Bengals. His resume also includes college head-coaching stints (Long Beach State and New Mexico), as well as NFL coordinator jobs with San Diego (1997-98), Buffalo (2001) and New Orleans (2005).
