[810 WHB] Sports Radio 810 WHB has learned that Chiefs CB Eric Warfield will be suspended for the first four games of the NFL season for violating the league’s susbstance abuse and alcohol policy.
Warfield was arrested for driving under the influence on September 20, 2004, in Overland Park, KS. Police said Warfield had a blood alcohol level of .189 percent, more than double Kansas’ .08 percent legal limit.
Warfield pleaded no contest in January to a felony DUI charge and was sentenced to 10 days in jail and 80 days of house arrest. The charge was a felony because Warfield had two prior DUI convictions.
As part of a plea agreement with Johnson County prosecutors, Warfield also was ordered to pay a $1,500 fine and perform 100 hours of community service. He will be on probation for a year. In exchange for the no-contest plea, prosecutors dropped misdemeanor counts of driving with a suspended license and having no proof of insurance.
