Phoenix DUI News: Giants football player arrested for extreme Arizona DUI

Adrian Awasom was arrested by the Arizona State Police for suspicion of drunk driving after being stopped at 3:00 am Friday on Interstate 10 in Phoenix. Though the results of blood tests are still pending, the Arizona Department of Public Safety has said the NFL player has been charged with extreme DUI, which indicates an elevated blood alcohol content.

The backup defensive end for the New York Giants is in Phoenix for the Super Bowl XLII. He arrived Thursday with the team, though he has been on injured reserve since September. In his third pro season Awasom has played a limited role on the team, including practice squad and special teams duty. He injured his neck in the second game of the 2007 season against the Green Bay Packers.

A spokesman for the Giants has said the team is aware of the situation and that Awasom has been sent home.
