When a professional athlete is stopped in his expensive car in Miami Beach at 4:30 in the morning during the off-season, it can spell trouble. And it did for Buffalo Bills wide receiver Roscoe Parrish, who was caught by Miami-Dade police and charged with DUI last weekend.

A Miami-Dade County jail spokeswoman said Parrish was released on a $1,000 bond. The 25-year-old is a Miami native and attended both high school and college in Dade County. He was a second-round pick of the Bills in 2005.

Parrish led the NFL last year in punt returns, averaging 16.3 yards on 27 attempts. That average was also a Bills record. From scrimmage, he caught 35 passes for 352 yards and one touchdown for the Bills, who went 7-9. Parrish, who has played three years for Buffalo, became the second Bill ever to score a touchdown rushing, receiving and on a punt return when he accomplished that trifecta last year.

Though alcohol is not banned by the National Football League, the league’s substance abuse policy states, “The commissioner will review and could impose a fine, suspension or other appropriate discipline if a player is convicted of or admits to a violation of the law— relating to the use of alcohol.”
