UPDATE: Player was not charged in the wreck. Nearly two months ago, he was convicted of misdemeanor public intoxication and fined $500, after prosecutors dropped a DWI charge against him, according to the Gregg County Jail records. Player has been arrested four times since 2011 on charges from DWI to speeding and minor consuming an alcoholic beverage.
