Oakland Raiders Star Busted for DUI

9/16/2008 5:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has confirmed Oakland Raiders superstar Tommy Kelly -- one of the NFL's highest paid defensive players -- was busted Sunday night in Oakland on suspicion of driving under the influence.

The arrest came after the Raiders beat the Chiefs in Kansas City earlier in the day.

The 300-pounder posted bail and was released from police custody. A rep for the Oakland Raiders had no comment.

Children SHOULD look up to their parents, and it is the parents who SHOULD be shining examples.

All that money and your determined to hi-side around in Oakland OF ALL PLACES while drunk? I just don't get it??? Is it THAT important for people to see you in your LEASED Escalade? IDIOT!

For all you NFL players reading this...I hope you are SMARTER than this. It is NOTHING to hire a car to take you around for the evening...it's better than potentially loosing your job!

This is great...have fun telling people you lost your job becasue you were out driving drunk because you guys beat Kansas City (of all teams). LMAO!!!!!!!!

i'm a flight attendant for united based out of san francisco and he was on one of my flights last season. it was when he had an injury, and he kept sticking his leg in the aisle, and he was in COACH. come on now. he can't even get upgraded to first class. he was a jerk and a half and he was terribly boozed up... i totally refused to serve to him and he asked if i knew who he was... i said that he could be anyone and oakland raiders don't really interest me. he then grabbed my ass and called me shorty and did i want to go home with him because i should be so honored to go home with a great football star and because i'm a little white girl and he's a big black guy... um, no. he's a drunk, and i'm glad that he got busted for a dui. not that much is going to happen to him except for a slap on the wrist. lock him up... that will teach him.

Mr Kelly, time to hire 2 full time drivers to take care of your driving. theres no need for you to be driving.... remember your the top nfl player and are a role model to kids all over the country.

Since these guys are some of the richest people on the planet you'd think they would have the good sense to hire a DRIVER when they tie one on. IDIOTS!!!

A Al Davis!!!!! instead of making war with the coach you interviewed, hired and now want to fire! you should instead look at what players you sign to HUGE contracts and don't even produce a tackle! in a game! oh wise one! With much respect Sir. You've been one of the greatest owners of all time, but time all but has passed you by...and now you are sinking this franchise and taking it with you to your grave....

Can't be that much of a superstar....never heard of him....Should be a new rule established because of idiots like this. They should take a class of ethics first.... Like to know how his teammates feel about him now. This story was like so many I have seen about celebs misconduct with the lack of regard thinking there God. But when I read the Flight attendands story...That got my blood boiling..I hope she pursues a case against him.
