Comments (0)

David Macklin, cornerback for the Kansas City Chiefs, was charged with a DUI early on the morning of March 13 in Newport News after his BMW was pulled by a trooper, according to Virginia State Police.

Police say that shortly after 3:15 a.m., Macklin was pulled for illegal window tint on the ramp from Interstate 64 West onto J. Clyde Morris Boulevard.

According State Police, Trooper J.R. Street, the trooper who pulled Macklin, noticed the odor of alcohol and saw that Macklin appeared to be impaired. Police said that further investigation showed him to have a blood-alcohol content higher than the legal limit of 0.08.

The 30-year-old Phoenix, Arizona resident was also charged for having illegally tinted windows. Police say he cooperated.

Macklin played high school football for Menchville High School in his hometown of Newport News. In November, he signed a two-year contract. He played six games as a Washington Redskin in 2007.
