Bills Release DT Alan Branch Following DWI Arrest

CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (AP / WBEN) The Buffalo Bills have released defensive tackle Alan Branch following an arrest for drunken driving in Cheektowaga on Saturday.

State police say Branch was arrested at about 2 a.m. Saturday after officers noticed Branch vomiting out the driver's side door of his vehicle.

Police say Branch failed a field sobriety test and had a blood-alcohol content of .14 percent. The legal limit is .08 percent. He was charged with driving while intoxicated and released. He's due back in court on Aug. 29. It wasn't clear if he had a lawyer.

Branch did not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Buccaneers. His arrest was revealed by Bills head coach Doug Marrone, in comments after the game.

In June, Bills defensive lineman Marcell Dareus was charged with drag racing and reckless endangerment after police say the 24-year-old crashed his Jaguar into a tree.

How are you feeling about the Sabres picking 2nd overall in the draft and likely getting Jack Eichel?
  I'm psyched!
  We lost but the consolation prize is pretty good!
  I'm hoping for a "deal"!
