Charges updated for ex-Cowboys RB Darren McFadden in McKinney DWI arrest outside Whataburger
MCKINNEY, Texas - McKinney police updated the charges against former Dallas Cowboys running back Darren McFadden following his January arrest.
McFadden was originally charged with driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest.
Now, his DWI charge indicates McFadden's blood alcohol level was more than .15, almost double the legal limit, which is .08.
The 31-year-old was arrested at a McKinney Whataburger after workers called police and said a man was asleep behind the wheel in the drive-thru lane.
