Former Panther WR Dwayne Jarrett's trial for a second DWI offense will continue in spite of his attorney's effort to get the case dismissed on grounds the officer did not have probable cause to pull him over:
Defense attorney George Laughrun showed District Judge Thomas F. Moore Jr. video of the arrest, and argued Watkins was driving in the opposite direction when Jarrett turned to get on the interstate.
Watkins said that was not the case.
Watkins testified he began following Jarrett when he noticed the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro driven by Jarrett had an improper dealer's tag. Watkins told the judge Jarrett began speeding when Watkins was behind him.
If convicted Jarrett could serve time in jail. Jarrett maintains is innocence...kind of:
"He didn't really have a reason to pull me over, so I guess we'll wait and see when they reschedule it again," Jarrett said. "I'm ready for it to be over."
Notice he doesn't say he wasn't impaired. If he thought he was going to jail would he want it to be over to quickly? Hopefully when his court date does roll around we have much more important stuff to talk about.
