Arrests

TROUBLE WITH THE LAW

The 2013 offseason was a rough one for NFL players and the law. Take a look back at the players arrested before camp ever opened.

The California Highway Patrol says it arrested San Francisco 49ers defensive end Demarcus Dobbs early Friday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence and possession of marijuana.

CHP Officer D.J. Sarabia says Dobbs was involved in a single-car accident in which he hit a chain-link fence and a bush but didn't sustain any injuries. Dobbs was arrested at 3:45 a.m.

The arrest came on the 25th birthday for Dobbs, one of the NFC West-leading Niners' top special teams players. The 49ers released a statement Friday afternoon saying Dobbs wouldn't travel with the team Friday to St. Louis, where San Francisco faces the Rams on Sunday.

The 49ers say they have been in contact with Dobbs and the NFL office and ''we are gathering the relevant facts as it pertains to this situation.''
