07:04 AM ET 06.13 | Chip Kelly now has a legitimate off-the-field issue with which to contend. Philadelphia Eagles offensive tackle and five-time Pro Bowler Jason Peters was arrested in Monroe early Wednesday morning after drag racing and resisting a police officer by flight, police said. According to the arrest affidavit, Deputy L. Deal observed a white Camaro and blue sedan at the red light of U.S. 165 North and Central Street around 4:45 a.m. When the traffic light turned green, the Camaro and sedan accelerated at a high rate of speed and appeared to be racing. The deputy activated emergency lights and attempted to pull over the vehicles. The sedan immediately pulled over to the shoulder of the roadway, but the Camaro, driven by Peters, accelerated to an extreme high rate of speed.

Better not have been in Eric Dickerson and Keyshawn's neighborhood. However, unlike the Biebs, Peters wouldn't have hid in his house afterwards.

Next time, try a yellow flag and a whistle instead of lights and a siren.

Offensive linemen in a race... Usually wings, pizza, or hot dogs are part of that story.

Once an eagle, always a LOSER... Morons of the NFC East.... Ringless and Clueless...

Must have been a supercharged engine to get that wide load beyond 60 miles an hour.

I was about to say... I'm no gear head but there had to be some serious horse power involved right there.

It happened on the strip where the road is wide,
two cool shorts standing side by side,
My fuel injected stingray and a four-thirteen
revving up their engines and they sound real mean

Well, the last thing I remember, Doc, I started to swerve
And then I saw the Jag slide into the curve
I know I'll never forget that horrible sight
I guess I found out for myself that everyone was right

Won't come back from Dead Man's Curve

Danica Patrick's racing career wouldn't be as successful if she weighed 185.

And her modeling career wouldn't be much, either.

He has gone from free agent to free on bail.

Cut him Mick.

Come on, it was just a little street drag. Write them a ticket and leave em alone. That's what they did when I was a kid. Well that and they made us pour out our beer.

And if your family was on that road?

Could have been worse, at least he was not arresting for racing in drag.
