Last November, former Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Todd Downing was arrested for driving under the influence and we now have the police officer’s body-cam video.
On the night of his arrest, Downing admitted he was having a “victory beer” and said he was racing home to see his family after receiving death threats, according to the body came video that has been obtained by TMZ Sports.
In the video which was published on Monday, a police officer pulls Downing over just after 2:30 a.m. for seeing Downing speeding past him at what the officer estimates to be more than 100 mph. Downing immediately tells the officer he’s driving as fast as he is to get to his family who had received death threats that day. Downing also said police were on their way to his home to make sure his family was safe.
Downing did not serve a suspension as a result of the incident and was never publicly punished by the Titans before his firing. Since his firing, Downing has been hired as the passing game coordinator for the New York Jets.
He did serve 48-hours in jail for the arrest.
