Former WVU Cornerback Daryl Worley Arrested; Released By Eagles
MORGANTOWN — Former West Virginia University cornerback Daryl Worley, recently acquired by the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles, was arrested early Sunday morning after being found passed out in a car blocking a highway near the team’s headquarters, according to numerous reports.
Worley was said to have been combative, forcing police to tase him with a stun gun. A gun was recovered at the scene.
Police received a 911 call at about 6 a.m. Sunday about a vehicle blocking the Philadelphia highway and when they arrived they found the 23-year-old Worley passed out in the car.
The Eagles issued a statement that said they were “gathering more information” about the incident.
Later Sunday, Howard Eskin of Philadelphia’s WIP radio, reported the Eagles released Worley.
Worley spent two seasons with the Carolina Panthers after he was selected by them in the third round of the 2016 draft. He is a Philadelphia native who was recently traded to the Eagles for Torrey Smith.
While at West Virginia, Worley had a previous run-in with the law when he was involved in an altercation outside Lux nightclub in Morgantown. Worley said at the time he was defending his girlfriend and pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor assault, receiving a six-month suspended sentence.
