Old Trouble Could Haunt Karl Paymah

It's been almost 2 years since Broncos CB was found asleep at the wheel of his Range Rover, with the vehicle in gear and running, but the Broncos could find out soon if the incident will effect the DB's prospects in 2008.  A jury in Arapahoe County found  Paymah to be guilty of DUI and Careless Driving in the case that was finally decided yesterday.

Paymah was found asleep or unconscious at the wheel of his Land Rover 50 yards off Arapahoe Road at South Parker Road at about 5 a.m. on May 26, 2006.

Paymah was unconscious when officers pulled him from his vehicle, with the SUV still running and in gear, authorities said.

His defense argued that the breath test was invalid. Officers in the case testified in the jury trial.

Paymah is set for sentencing Sept. 16. He faces up to a year in jail.

Now that a conviction has been handed down, Paymah could face discipline from the NFL as part of the Conduct Policy.  I believe this was Paymah's first offense, and he has been "clean" since so a stern warning could be the only punishment.
