The trial of former Denver Broncos quarterbackChris Simms, currently the backup quarterback for the Tennessee Titans, for driving while high on marijuana begins in New York today. Simms, the son of former New York Giants quarterback and current broadcaster Phil Simms, was stopped last July at a sobriety checkpoint.
Arresting officers alleged that Simms was “zombie-like” and admitted to using marijuana, a claim that Simms denies. A well respected Denver criminal defense lawyer with over a decade of experience defending marijuana and DUI related offenses believes that Simms’ defense team will most likely challenge the legality of the checkpoint and the basis for his arrest.
