Little indicted on charges of persistent drunken driving
The Associated Press
ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Rams defensive end Leonard Little has been indicted on charges of persistent drunken driving, nearly two months after police in a St. Louis suburb stopped and arrested him on a freeway.
The St. Louis County indictment accusing Little, who pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in a 1998 wreck that killed a St. Louis woman, mirrors charges in a criminal complaint filed against him April 26.
Little's attorney called Wednesday's indictment accusing his client of speeding and as a persistent offender with felony driving while intoxicated expected, saying "it essentially was a foregone conclusion that this was going to be the case."
Scott Rosenblum said even though an arraignment date on the indictment's counts has not been set, "we will enter a plea of not guilty."
Little, 29, was arrested shortly before 4 a.m. April 24 after police in Ladue pulled him over for reportedly traveling 78 mph in a 55-mph zone on Interstate 64. A statement filed by police said Little had bloodshot and watery eyes, smelled of alcohol and failed three roadside sobriety tests.
