In a previously reported story involving the Bucs’ starting right tackle and an altercation with the law, it is suspected that Jeremy Trueblood will not face a suspension for his actions this past week.
Pro Football Weekly reported the news in this manner:
Buccaneers OT Jeremy Trueblood wasn’t charged with a crime and probably won’t face a suspension after getting arrested for public intoxication July 6. Trueblood has been credited for having a designated driver – his mother, Wanda – that evening, and he disputed the police report that alleged he knocked things off counters in a gas station. Trueblood, who vowed to become more disciplined on the field this offseason after drawing personal-foul penalties at key moments last season, is playing on a one-year tender and will try to earn a future long-term deal with his play in 2010.
With Trueblood expected to avoid any missed time, it’s essential that he gets his head back in the game of football, and give the Buccaneers what they need: a solid protector for second year man, Josh Freeman.
