Saints Receiver Joe Morgan Busted For Alleged DWI

The Earhart Expressway is a pretty damned busy highway. It's three lanes in either direction, and runs from New Orleans to the suburbs, and sometimes a Saints receiver passes out in his car in the middle of the road on a Saturday night.


Around midnight, a state trooper came across a stopped vehicle, and found Morgan, the 25-year-old Saints receiver, asleep behind the wheel. When asked to step out of the car, the police report notes Morgan was unsteady on his feet, had bloodshot eyes, and smelled of alcohol. He failed a sobriety test and was arrested.


Morgan's blood alcohol content registered at 0.218 percent, almost three times the legal limit. He was booked for DWI and driving without a license, and released on bond the same day.
