Raiders Running Back Michael Bush Charged With DUI
Raiders running back Michael Bush was arrested and charged with driving under the influence in Clark County, Indiana, early Saturday morning, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal’s website.
Bush, 26, was pulled over for a traffic violation by Indiana State Police at 3:47 a.m. in Jeffersonville, police told the Courier-Journal.
He was then booked into Clark County Jail and released about 1 p.m. on his own recognizance.
