Former NFL Star Robert Mathis Loses Year & A Half Battle – Will Spend Time In Jail

In October 2017, former linebacker Robert Mathis was stopped by police for driving the wrong way on a one-way street and for failing to use his turn signals. Officers state that he seemed lost, confused, and that his manner of speech was slow and thickened. Despite the fact that his blood alcohol level was only a 0.052 he was still arrested for an OWI – operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

Why? Because he mentioned that he had taken a sleeping pill earlier in the evening.

Mathis fought the charges for over a year but recently agreed to a plea deal. He pled guilty to 1 misdemeanor count of OWI and in exchange received one-year probation and 60 days in jail. During his probation, he cannot drink alcohol for the entire year. He must also attend a victim impact panel.

Ray Donovan Star Must Attend Parenting Classes After DUI

When officers arrived, they administered a blood alcohol test which registered at .25, which is more than three times the legal limit in Calfornia.

Hall was facing up to six years in prison, however, he was able to reach a plea agreement. Hall will be on probation for three years, a three-month alcohol abuse class, and a year-long parenting class.
