THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – Former Eastern Washington standout Aaron Neary, a center on the Los Angeles Rams’ practice squad, has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and damaging property.

The Simi Valley Police Department says it received several calls about an erratic driver who had hit a bus stop sign and mailboxes and trash cans on Sunday night, about two hours after the Rams’ victory over the Arizona Cardinals.

The police say they stopped Neary in the described car, and he had a blood-alcohol level of .17 percent, more than double the legal limit. Neary was arrested and booked.

Neary is a third-year NFL pro from EWU who spent most of last season with the Rams. He was waived Aug. 31 and re-signed to their practice squad.
