Daryl Worley, released by Eagles, faces charges including DUI, weapons violations


The team announced it has released DB Daryl Worley after he was arrested early Sunday morning after reportedly being found passed out inside a vehicle that was blocking a highway.

Worley reportedly was found passed out in a auto blocking the highway near the Eagles team facility on Sunday, and he was arrested after an incident with police that ultimately escalated into police tasing Worley. He is alleged to have begun fighting with officers who woke him and police used a taser to subdue him, a source close to the situation said, confirming an NFL Network report.

Philadelphia sent veteran wideout Torrey Smith to the Panthers in exchange for Worley.

He was expected to compete for a roster spot as a backup corner back or safety. So far there is no information from the authorities if Worley has been charged and what will be his penalty.

Unlike Belgian defender Kompany, Guardiola spent Sunday afternoon playing golf with his son instead of watching the United match. City are 16 points clear of second placed United, who can only take a maximum of 15 points from their remaining five games.

The football player was passed out in his auto Sunday morning near the teams' practice facility in South Philadelphia.

Worley, a third-round pick in 2016, started 25 games in the past two seasons for the Panthers.

While at West Virginia, Worley pleaded no contest to misdemeanor assault in 2014 after an incident at a nightclub. Defensive end Michael Bennett, who was obtained in a trade with Seattle last month, was indicted on a felony charge of injury of the elderly on March 23 after allegedly shoving a 66-year-old female paraplegic at Super Bowl LI in Houston, Texas on February 5, 2017.
