After a Tuesday night to forget, Bucs’ starting right tackle Jeremy Trueblood was arrested for public intoxication. Luckily, there will be no charges filed, and was released this morning from Hancock County jail.
After leaving an Indiana store, a witness of the scene called the police and reported that two men in the vehicle, who had just left the store, were so drunk they could barely stand. The police found everyone in the car without their seatbelts on, and Trueblood’s mother driving the car because her son and the other passengers were drinking all day after a golf outing.
Trueblood is one of the Bucs’ best offensive linemen, starting 61 consecutive games dating back to 2006, a team high. With the Donald Penn situation still giving Tampa coaches and players headaches, we can not afford to have any other players bringing the team down, especially another offensive linemen.
