Steve McNair

The Tennessee DUI charge against NFL quarterback Steve McNair was dismissed after his brother-in-law agreed to a lesser traffic violation.

McNair was a passenger in his Dodge pick-up truck when the vehicle was stopped by Nashville police in May for speeding. The driver, brother-in-law Jamie Cartwright, was arrested after he failed a field sobriety test. Under Tennessee law, McNair was also charged with DUI for allowing his vehicle to be driven by someone who was drunk.

Cartwright’s DUI defense attorney negotiated a plea bargain of reckless driving. As a consequence of the lesser charge, the case against McNair was dismissed.

The former Tennessee Titan player was in General Sessions Court in Nashville when the DUI was dropped.
