Panthers Cut Jarrett After 2nd DWI Charge

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Carolina Panthers have released

receiver Dwayne Jarrett, hours after his second arrest on a charge

of driving while impaired in less than three years.

Tuesday’s move ends a disappointing four-year stay for Jarrett

in Carolina after being a second-round pick in 2007.

The Panthers replaced him with receiver David Clowney, who was

claimed off waivers from the New York Jets

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police spokesman Bob Fey says Jarrett was

pulled over on Interstate 77 in Charlotte for speeding shortly

before 2 a.m. Tuesday, a day off for the team. Fey says Jarrett

declined to take a breath test to determined his blood-alcohol

level and results of the ensuing blood tests may not be known for

several weeks.

Jarrett pleaded guilty to a DWI charge in 2008.
