Jarrett's blood-alcohol level was .12 at arrest, police report indicates

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Police records show Carolina Panthers receiver Dwayne Jarrett's blood-alcohol level was .12 when he was arrested on a driving while impaired charge, above North Carolina's legal limit of .08.

Mecklenburg County court spokesman Charles Keller said Jarrett's blood-alcohol reading was in a police document delivered to the court Wednesday. A hearing involving Jarrett was continued until April 11.

The 21-year-old was arrested early Tuesday in the Charlotte suburb of Mint Hill after police said he crossed the center line and ran a red light.

The second-round pick from Southern California failed to crack the starting lineup last season and was held to six catches for 73 yards and no touchdowns.
