News travels rather fast, and earlier today there was a report according to the Daily Illini that Dolphins first-round pick Vontae Davis was arrested back on June 9th for unnecessary vehicular noise and driving without a valid license. Davis got wind of the news, and told the Sun-Sentinel “It’s a crazy thing, when I heard about it, it hit me: ‘Oh, God.’ It was something I couldn’t prepare for. It just came out of nowhere.”

The team is also coming out, and stating that they believe their pick, as they have released their own statement about the situation. “I spoke to Vontae, and he told me he was in South Florida all day on June 9, the day the incident supposedly occurred,” spokesman Harvey Greene wrote. “In addition, we had a scheduled OTA that morning that Vontae attended, and he also attended a rookie life-skill session that afternoon.

“Finally, we also know he was in the building at 7:00 a.m. the next morning. So, in addition to Vontae’s own word that he wasn’t in Champaign, it’s almost physically impossible for him to have been there at the time the incident allegedly took place.”

Davis insists he was attending an OTA on June 9th and June 10th.
