Player won't face public-intoxication charges

July 7, 2010

A Tampa Bay Buccaneers player taken into custody in Hancock County for public intoxication will not face charges. Indianapolis native Jeremy Trueblood, 27, was a passenger in a car driven by his mother when they stopped at a Greenfield convenience store to ask for directions just before 7 p.m. Tuesday. Someone there called 911 and reported that male subjects who had been in the car could barely stand up because they were intoxicated. Trueblood and Benjamin McKenny, 26, were taken into custody a short time later. County Prosecutor Dean Dobbins on Wednesday morning said the charges didn’t rise to the level of public intoxication. He said Trueblood did the right thing by calling his mother for a ride after drinking at a golf outing. Fox59 will have more at 4 p.m.
