The 6'6", 300-pound defensive tackle was pulled over in February for suspected drunk driving. The stop happened in front of the Marathon Gas Station at 12 Mile and Southfield. McDowell was tasered and even reached for one of the officer's hangun during the altercation. McDowell was charged with multiple crimes, including driving with a suspended license, OWI - second offense, and two charges of assault / resisting a police officer. 

McDowell was waived by the NFL's Seattle Seahawks in July of last year after suffering a concussion and facial injuries after an ATV accident. He is a free agent and had a visit with the Dallas Cowboys back in March.
