Former Georgia tight end Orson Charles, one of the three best tight end draft prospects in this class, was arrested for DUI on Friday morning.

That news was first reported by the Georgia student newspaper Red & Black. CBSSports.com has since confirmed with the Athens-Clarke County Police that Charles was arrested at 4:31 a.m. ET on Friday morning.

Charles was arrested for DUI and "minimum speed." Per the police office, that means "basically, he was driving too slow."

There are few worse times to get arrested than right now for Charles: he had an impressive showing at the combine a few weeks ago and had the potential to land as high as the first round because of the scarcity of tight ends in this class.

Now it's highly unlikely that he can vault himself above Dwyane Allen of Clemson and Cody Fleener of Stanford.

It is sad commentary on our times. He jusrt got busted for the traffic violation, he did not injure anybody, he only hurt himself. It should not lose anything in his draft status, he is just a kid who made a mistake like most other kids.

Nice move!  You are about to make millions and you become a serious knucklehead and get busted for DUI.  Go figure!  Nothing like a little extra baggage to carry around!

Gonna cost him a lot of dough. He was driving too slow, how do you like that? At least, never should have gotten behind the wheel, I guess, he was trying to be careful.....
