MONROE, La. (AP) - Five-time Pro Bowler Jason Peters of the Philadelphia Eagles has been arrested in north Louisiana for allegedly drag racing and trying to flee from police.
The Monroe (La.) News-Star reports (http://tnsne.ws/11gxete ) that Peters was released on bond Wednesday after his early morning arrest. An arrest affidavit obtained by the newspaper says an Ouachita (WAH' shih TAH) Parish Sheriff's Office deputy saw a white Camaro and a blue sedan in what appeared to be a race at 4:45 a.m.
The sedan's driver pulled over when the deputy activated his lights. Authorities said the Camaro driver, identified as Jason R. Peters, led the deputy on a chase at speeds exceeding 100 mph before finally stopping at a shopping mall parking lot.
It wasn't clear if he has an attorney.
The Eagles said they've been in contact with Peters, but declined further comment due to ``the legal nature of this matter.''
