Atlanta, Georgia. Eric Weems, wide receiver of the Atlanta Falcons, was arrested for DUI back on November 16. The team just learned about his transgression which clearly indicates the athlete just assumed his team did not learn about the incident. Weems here is your first lesson about being a professional athlete, nothing you do is a secret. When you break the law and are arrested you will not be able to keep that quiet.
The undrafted free agent rookie handles kick returns and has been a minor option in the Falcon offense. It is unknown at this time if Weems will serve a suspension. Weems should be heading to court shortly in DeKalb County for his criminal case.
