Eddie George Riding In Passenger Seat With Another Woman--Who Copped A DUI!

Well this is interesting.  Former NFL star Eddie George--the husband of Tamara "Taj" George from singing group SWV--was caught up in a recent DUI.  But he wasn't the culprit.  A pro-golfing blonde was.

 

Deets inside...

21-year-old Rachel Connor--a pro-golfer from the UK who is here in America on a visa--was arrested at 2:21AM this morning in Sarasota, Florida for a DUI.  And, according to TMZ, a man identified as 38-year-old Eddie George was in the passenger seat.  Eddie didn't get arrested, only Rachel.

Her topmost breathalyzer registered at .137, way over the .08 legal limit.  Rachel claimed she only had 2 vodka cranberries earlier in the night.  But cops said she couldn't walk a straight line or count in numerical order.  She was also cheesing extra hard in her mugshot.

Rachel twitpic'd the above picture several hours before of herself (on far left), Eddie and a friend at an event.  And another pic of them together on a golf course.  So it was likely some type of celebrity golf event.   And apparently Eddie needed a ride back to his hotel? 

Were not sayin'.  But we're just sayin'....

 

Fun Fact: Eddie & Taj have a marriage book they penned together that was just released last month called "Married for Real: Building a Loving, Powerful Life Together."  *eyebrows raised*

Why are people surprised that

Why are people surprised that we're speculating about a story posted on a gossip blog? Are we supposed to call these people, get all the facts, check them over with an attorney, and then come back on here and talk about what REALLY happened? Seriously...all we can do is speculate so that's what I"m going to do. That's what he gets. He never in a million years thought the night would play out like that...he probably thought he was home free. Ha! Divine intervention....it was probably going to turn out to be the worst mistake of his life. Now learn your lesson and pray your wife forgives you.

Why was the drunk person

Why was the drunk person driving? Or was he drunk too and it's just not being reported because he was the passenger? Yes, married people are still human and will have friends and attend events without their spouse but if you need a ride home...catch a damn cab.

For the sake of their family,

For the sake of their family, I hope Eddie was not cheating on Taj. We may not know the exact circumstances, but we do know it had to be really uncomfortable in the George house when he got home.

People are just taking this

People are just taking this situation and making huge assumptions about this man, his wife and their marraige wow! Whoever said married people become siamese twins and forever joined at the hip after saying "I DO"? I got to events without my husband and catch a ride home from a member of the opposite sex albeit NOT A DRUNK one, does that translate to cheating on my husband? My husband's work consist of him having to do a lot of networking at events that sometimes run late, I need to be home taking care of our little ones. I don't assume he's out there cheating, he's given me no reason to but here are people analyzing a picture looking for cheating clue LOL. People are jumping to all kinds of conclusions without knowing the full story! The only thing that I see as very wrong in this situation is: He should NOT have let her drive the car because she put her life, his life and the lives of others on the road in danger.

I agree that there are no facts, just assumptions. Although, he should not have put his life in danger and should have encouraged her to take a cab home. Have humanity and we as a society gone so far as to destroy a marriage for the sake of entertainment?

Exactly,maybe Eddie and that

Exactly,maybe Eddie and that Chick,did an Event together,then them and others Hung Out after the Event,and she gave Eddie a Ride...Was it Smart to take a Ride ,with a Drunk Chick NO,but that does Not mean he was Cheating.People always Jump to Conclusions without having All the FACTS!!!!

You stupid Cole (In my best Tommy from Martin voice)....My hubby would NEVER get in a car with a single woman bc OUR motto is "AVOID THE APPEARANCE OF EVIL" in all situations. We drive ourselves #1, and NEVER get into cars with opposite sex folk without someone else there. People are crazy, will try crazy, and make you act crazy, so why bother??? It's not even about cheating, it's more about NEVER giving anyone the opportunity to even infer that we were engaging in any improprieties. If you're not there, you can't be lied upon, nor in a story on YBF.

You sound INSECURE,your hubby

You sound INSECURE,your hubby Can't be around Single Women,seems like you have Trust Issues. So if a Woman is Married then your Hubby can be around her? FYI Married people Cheat the Most! Then you say it's Not about Cheating ,then What is it about? You think your Hubby will be Enticed into a Situation,Opportunity to Cheat are EVERYWHERE,it's up to the person ,if they are going to Engage in it. People Can't live in a Bubble and Not Socialize with the Opposite Sex!!!

Marek's Wifey: There's some

Marek's Wifey: There's some guilty man/woman in prison wishing you were on their jury right about now... It's nice that you feel your husband (or even yourself) can be out with the opposite sex, drunk, at 2:30 in the a.m. without anything indecent going on. Shows your character and that means you are probably a very trustworthy person. In my opinion, your thinking is a little naive, but hell, I'll admit, I've been cheated on before (and know what my flesh is capable of too) so I might be a little more suspicious than average. Either way, the situation he was caught in was inappropriate at the very least and the mere fact that he's 38 years old in a car with a 21 year old at 2 a.m. speaks volumes.
Nihala's picture

*AMENDED* Thanks for the

*AMENDED* Thanks for the compliment albeit a little back handed lol. I am not naive, Nihala. I have been cheated on in relationships but those men who didn't know they had a diamond in hand and not the man to whom I am married who values me immensely. Having said that, I am glad you said that you know what your flesh and what it is capable of so maybe you can't be around a member of the opposite sex which lowered inbitions without acting inappropriately. I am very capable of being around inebriated people without feeling the need to act out and I have been in situations like that before due to my business and my husband is not a drinker so IF he were to cheat on me, it would be with his eyes wide open and sober. In all of my comments, I have never given Mr. George a pass on being in a car with a drunk individual, my disagreement has always been for everyone to not assume that there was some hanky-panky going on because he's in a car at 2am with a girl younger than him who is giving him a ride home from a function. He was caught in a situation where he made a bad judgement about he got a ride from not an inappropriate situation where intimacy was involved. It is actually quite possible that his wife couldn't pick him up and everywhere is not like NY where one can just hop in a cab. What has her age got to do with her ability to drive? Should he have asked her age before getting in the car? He should have smelled the liquor on her breath and asked to drive but to bring up his age and hers, I don't know how that is relevant to the bigger issue at hand which is that he should have been the one driving. Thanks for a good discourse;)

Eddie George has enough $$$

Eddie George has enough $$$ and sense (I thought) to have a rental car, or chauffeured limo when he goes to these events. At any rate, based on who he is and all he has going for him, he should not be accepting rides from an allegedly drunk 19 year old or any 19 year old. Good Lord Eddie! You're on national TV now. This is not your frat days at the Ohio State University. What the hell were you thinking?...with!!! H'mmmmmmmmm. Do you think that Taj will once again be tolerant now that this one has hit national/worldwide news? HAH!

someone gets to go on a "no

someone gets to go on a "no questions asked shopping spree" this weekend! yea, i don't necessarily think this means he was trying to sleep with the girl but he definitely put himself in a badddd situation on just all levels--- even when it comes to just being an adult. i think only his wife really knows if he is a cheater though. if he has cheated in a past she knows what the likely deal is. if she's never had an issue with any jumpoffs calling, or him cheating and he's gone to celebrity events before where he has mingled with women but it never caused any problem then she probably shouldn't throw her marriage away because of it--- she has every right to be mad but he is going to have to do alot of damage control to try to "prove" he wasn't trying to sleep with the woman.

Well when I saw the headline, my first thought was "Awwwww sh*t". But after reading the story, I see that the girl twit pic'ed a photo of them, so it wasnt like it was some big secret that they were together. Im not saying that Eddie is guilty. I'm just saying that he could be innocent.

I swear SOME of you people

I swear SOME of you people just can't be real. I just keep reading about how it was terrible for this man to be in a car with a WHITE girl. Are you serious? This MARRIED man had no business being in a car with ANY woman in the middle of the night, race shouldn't be an issue in this case. But of course we as a black race have turned it into a racial issue.We need to get our shit together and focus on the right stuff.

Shaking my head at this

Shaking my head at this ignorant man. Even if it was completely innocent, the APPEARANCE of the situation just isn't good and it puts Eddie George and his WIFE Taj in a very bad light. Especially on the heels of this *ahem, clears throat* "marraige" advice book. I wonder if Taj even knew where he was or who he was with? Guess she does now. This incident has shades of Tiki Barber to it - he was also caught up with a young white female. It wasn't a criminal situation but he was caught out and about with her while his wife was pregnant with twins!!! And he eventually left his wife of X many years for the 21 year old blond white NBC intern. He lost his NBC gig behind that, lost his wife, has an underdeveloped relationship with his new kids, and hasn't been able to make a successful NFL comeback. But he's got his young new piece of tail so I guess he's happy!!!

Sistaz are 100% right for being extremely selective as to what n!ggers d!ck she's gonna put in her mouth! Black men will stick their d!cks into any & everything that will let him and often unprotected! A female would be a fawking fool to just drop to her knees and start blowing you!!! If a white trick will then she's a nasty b!tch who will never be reveled at or envious of by a sista!!
