Pitt Panther arrested for DUI-related auto accident, pulls "Do you know who I am?" card

Pitt reserve tailback Jason Douglas had been indefinetly suspended after being "charged with aggravated assault with a vehicle while DUI and being involved in an accident that resulted in personal injury, as well as a misdemeanor charge of driving while under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance and a summary underage drinking charge." The victim of the accident reportedly "suffered head and neck injuries."
Even worse, Douglas is reported to have attempted to pull the "Do you know who I am?" card.
"Police said he was slow to comply with their orders to exit the vehicle, and when he spoke without prompting, he said, "Hey, I play for Pitt football. Please, don't arrest me," according to the affidavit that supports his arrest."
Dave Wannstedt is probably none too pleased by this. This suspension might end up a permanent one.
