Rachel Connor mug shot
Retired NFL star Eddie George was sitting in the passenger seat ... when pro golfer Rachel Connor was busted for drunk driving in Florida early this morning ... TMZ has learned.

Connor -- a 21-year-old British golf pro -- was pulled over at 2:21 AM in Sarasota, Florida ... after cops say they noticed her speeding and weaving in her lane.

Cops noticed a man in the passenger seat ... who was identified as 38-year-old Eddie George ... former NFL star and Heisman Trophy winner.

According to the report, Connor was given a breathalyzer test and blew a .133 and a .137 ... way over the legal limit, .08. Cops say she had trouble walking straight and couldn't count in numerical order.

According to the report, Cops asked Rachel if she could turn back the clock and change any of her decisions what would it be? ... And Rachel responded, she would have decided "not to drive."

Hours before the arrest, Connor tweeted a photo of Eddie on the golf course ... and another photo of herself and Eddie posing together at an event.

First of all, he JUST wrote a book with his wife on a successful marriage. Hilarious.

Second, why all the racists? Something I have noticed as an aging white male, who used to slighty racist. Is that not only is there nothing wrong with interracial relationships. But I get why blondes and young women like black guys. Except for the Pitts and Clooneys, most middle-aged white guys like me LOOK TERRIBLE. Yeah, maybe we got a little bit more scratch. But you can't F a pile of cash. Blacks, who are athletic, are handsome and masculine. While my body is looking more like my wife's every years. NO HOMO!

What's funny there, Rachel? Another idiot smiling in a mug shot. See no remorse. Would it have been as funny if someone was killed? Please go back to England and send Princess Kate over here.

What does Eddie George have in common with a girl who is almost young enough to be his daughter?. His old teammate Steve Mcnair also had a young girl he was cheating on his wife with, we all know how that turned out, she killed him

This whole thing is wrong....first of all SHE'S BRITISH!!! She was weaving all over the road because THEY DRIVE ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE ROAD...Eddie kept grabbing the wheel to get her to the right, she kept going left.

Secondly, SHE'S BRITISH!!! They drink beer all the time. The breathalyzer was calibrated for an American....they needed to set it to "British" and it wouldn't have registered anything at all. You can see by her mug shot that she isn't drunk. Set the damn thing to "British"!!!

Case dismissed.

lol typical of TMZ commenters. I bet it eats all of you alive that white women can't get enough of black men. Call them thugs, gangsters, gang members or whatever...but you damn sure better hide your wife from them. Leave off to work and she will be in your bed, getting pouded by the black guy from across the hall.
