Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis was passed out behind the wheel of his Rolls Royce before he was arrested for DUI ... according to cops ... and TMZ Sports has a pic of the bust.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ Sports, officers in Fairfax County, Virginia responded to a tip about a black male passed out in his car at a traffic light at 3:45 PM on Thursday.

When cops arrived to the scene, they approached the vehicle -- and when Davis rolled down his window, the smell of booze hit the officer like a ton of bricks. .

Cops say Davis admitted he'd been drinking at a friend's house.

Cops say Davis proceeded to perform terribly during field sobriety tests -- and he eventually blew a .17 on a breathalyzer.

Davis was eventually arrested for DUI -- cops towed his car from the scene.

Earlier in the week, Davis was suspended by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy -- though Fred insists he simply took a substance that was not FDA approved.

If you can afford a Rolls, you can afford to have somebody drive it for you. Shame on him -- no excuses.

Just another loser Redskin player, the entire franchise is cursed from the owner down to the guy who sweeps the floors in the lockeroom, this franchise has real serious problems and no coaching change is ever going to fix it.

Holy moly    

We seriously need to have better laws against drunk driving! All these celebrities think it's a good idea to drive in these conditions and then when someone finally gets hurt they're crying and finding a million excuses for causing such destruction. Make them pay more or keep them on jail longer. They gotta start learning this is a dangerous thing to do.
