Marcus Coleman Convicted
According to 610 Marcus was convicted of DUI and could face jail time.

I heard the same thing on the local CBS affiliate tonight :(

TEXANS84 07-26-2004 05:57 PM

He won't get jail time though...Most likely a year probation and a fine.

From KHOU.com:

Texans' Coleman convicted of driving while intoxicated

05:20 PM CDT on Monday, July 26, 2004

From 11 News Staff Reports

HOUSTON -- A jury has convicted Houston Texan Marcus Coleman of driving while intoxicated.

Jurors deliberated nearly seven hours before finding the defensive back guilty.

Coleman, 30, was arrested in May after crashing his brand new Mercedes-Benz on Kirby. Coleman was alone in the car and he wasn't hurt.

A police video played during the trial showed him stumble when asked to walk a straight line and lose his balance when asked to stand on one leg.

Coleman denied being intoxicated and blamed the crash on being distracted while adjusting his car radio.

The charge carries a potential sentence of up to 180 days in jail.

Jurors will return tomorrow for the sentencing phase of the trial.

Coleman is a nine-year NFL veteran and the Texans' starting right cornerback.

Interesting, to say the least.

big loss if it happens? yes, but it more than likely wont.

and if it does, we'll put mccree back there, who can hold his own til coleman gets back

Aside from the football I hope Marcus finds help for this and comes out of it a better man.

SESupergenius 07-26-2004 06:22 PM

A bigger question is what will the NFL/Texans do to him? Couldn't he be fined and/or suspended? If so then the Robinson pick looks pretty good (see Vinny I can say "Good GM") And we still have McCree.

Ya, at least we will have a great backup in McCree if something does cause Coleman to sit out.

Just a guess but I think you will see a fine but no suspension from the league.

Just a guess but I think you will see a fine but no suspension from the league.
you can also expect the same from the Justice Dept. Texas penalty's for DUI are laughable at best.

El Tejano 07-26-2004 10:21 PM

You also gotta say Good GM for the safety draft picks. Any chance we will bring anyone in for a looksy now?
