It was quite a weekend for Kyle Long, son of Howie Long and stud pitching prospect for Florida State. Well, he was a pitching prospect at FSU.
Our pal Rob Iracane checks in with this tip from Charlottesville, Va.:
Kyle Long was arrested early Sunday morning after University of Virginia police say they saw him driving the wrong way on 12 and a 1/2 Street and after he failed a pair of sobriety tests.
A police report given to NBC29 shows 20-year-old Kyle Long blew a .10 in a breath test. This arrest comes on the heels of Long's unexpected departure from Florida State University. He left FSU before the baseball season ever began. A Tallahassee paper reports that he'll transfer to a community college close to home.
I can't help thinking of the Chevy truck commercial where Howie pulls up to various stranded Tundra owners and offers them a ride. The new version has Howie passing all those guys because Kyle's always in the passenger's seat.
