Default Browns RB Droughns released on bail

By Associated Press
Thu May 25, 11:56 AM

CENTENNIAL, Colo. - Cleveland Browns running back Reuben Droughns was released on $2,500 bail Thursday after he was arrested in a domestic violence case.

The 27-year-old, who played for the Denver Broncos until a 2005 trade, faces charges of third-degree assault and harassment. His attorney, Harvey Steinberg, did not immediately return a call.

Droughns surrendered on Wednesday and spent the night in jail before appearing in Arapahoe County Court Thursday, district attorney's spokeswoman Kathleen Walsh said.

Walsh said the judge will allow him to leave the state if he has permission from whoever posts his bond.

The judge also issued an order barring Droughns from any contact with his accuser, whose name was not released.

Conviction on the assault charge, a class 1 misdemeanor, would carry a penalty of six to 18 months in jail, Walsh said. Conviction on the harassment charge, a class 3 felony, would carry a penalty of up to six months in jail.

Sheriff's Capt. Mark Fisher said the charges stemmed from a May 12 incident in this south Denver suburb. No details of the incident were released.

Browns officials issued a statement saying they were aware of the case and were taking it seriously but had no other comment.

Droughns' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, did not immediately return a message.

Droughns, who signed a three-year contract extension with the Browns this year, rushed for 1,232 yards last season on 309 carries, scoring two touchdowns.

Earlier this month, an Ohio jury decided Droughns was not impaired by alcohol when an Ohio State Patrol trooper pulled him over Nov. 1. A breath test showed Droughns had an alcohol level of 0.08, the state's legal limit.

Droughns was charged with failing the Breathalyzer test, driving under the influence and traveling 50 mph in a 35-mph zone.

Droughns and his wife, Kellie, disputed the trooper's testimony that Droughns was weaving, and Droughns said he was unfamiliar with the speed limit in the area. Droughns said he drank three ****tails at a Halloween party that night.

I guess if you drink enough you will eventually forget that Charlie Frye is your Quarterback.

Well I guess when you have been as bad as the Browns have been on the field since being back in the NFL. You need something to take the pain away.
