Police arrested Baltimore Ravens running back Bernard Pierce last night in Baltimore County. Caught speeding at 2 a.m., Pierce was pulled over for driving 55 mph in a 30 mph zone. Police asked him to step out of the car and complete a sobriety test, which he failed, and was subsequently cuffed for. Pierce was cooperative with officers, and didn't have to appear before a magistrate. As a first-time offender, the county allowed him to be released into a "responsible party."
“We are aware of the situation and learning more about it,” said Ravens team spokesman Kevin Byrne. “We take these matters seriously.”
If convicted, the 23-year-old running back, now entering his fourth year in the league, would face a suspension under the NFL's new Personal Conduct Policy. As ProFootballTalk notes, the Ravens have cut two other players who faced legal problems this offseason. Terrence Cody was released before even being charged with alleged animal cruelty, while Victor Hampton was cut shortly after his own DUI arrest.
Given that Pierce is only the team's second-string running back, this news can't bode well for his future with the Ravens.
