Hours after his team dominated the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, Los Angeles Rams center Aaron Neary was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol, according to multiple reports.

The 25-year-old practice squad player’s blood alcohol level registered 0.17 percent on a breathalyzer attest, more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent in California, the Simi Valley Police Department said.

Witnesses called 911 reporting a vehicle that collided with “several fixed objects, including a bus stop sign, mailboxes and trash cans” around 6:27 p.m., authorities said. Neary allegedly continued driving until police stopped him. In addition to the DUI, he was charged with a hit-and-run, property damage.

Neary did not play in the Rams’ home opener, a 34-0 win over the Cardinals. L.A. signed the Eastern Washington product to the practice squad five days earlier. He started one game for the Rams in 2017.
