Former Atlanta Falcon Ray Buchanan of Duluth was arrested and charged with DUI and other traffic offenses Saturday (Sept. 30) on I-85 in Gwinett County, according to an article Monday in the Gwinnett Daily Post.
In addition to driving under the influence, Buchanan was charged with speeding and improper lane change, the GDP reported. He was arrested about 4:15 a.m. Saturday after he was allegedly clocked driving 95 m.p.h. on Interstate 85 North near Ga. Hwy. 316 in a 65 m.p.h. zone. He was released on bond about four hours later.
The arresting officer reported that Buchanan’s vehicle was darting in and out of traffic without signaling. When the officer turned on his lights to pull him over, Buchanan reportedly swerved across five lanes to the right shoulder of the interstate in one motion, according to the article.
Buchanan, who told police he had a single drink, reportedly registered a blood-alcohol content of .091 during a breath test administered at the Gwinnett County Police Department’s Central Precinct in Duluth, the article stated.
The GDP reported that Buchanan, an Atlanta Falcon from 1997 to 2003, was a star cornerback during his 1998 season.
