Pro Football Player Arrested On DUI, Hit And Run Charges In Ventura County

A member of the Los Angeles Rams football team is facing DUI and hit and run charges following an incident in Ventura County.

Simi Valley Police received multiple calls at around 6:30 Sunday night about a possible DUI driver after a vehicle hit a bus stop sign, some trash cans, and mailboxes neat the intersection of Royal Avenue, and Sinaloa Road. No one was hurt. Officers spotted, and stopped the vehicle on El Monte Drive near El Lado Drive.

They identified the driver as Aaron Neary, and say when he provided a breath sample, it was more than double the legal limit of .08. Neary is a backup center for the Rams. The Simi Valley man didn’t play in Sunday’s 34-0 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Los Angeles.
