Oliver posted an article from ABC Houston from the day after his arrest and asked people to go back and read the article again with the knowledge that his blood work came back clean.
“Now y’all go back and read this article knowing that all my blood work came back clean!!!” Oliver wrote. “but (SIC) I had a beer can between my legs get the f*** out of here. (How) does a 5′8 officer (see) inside a window above his head anyway. (How) do 5 cop cars show up before I take a sobriety test?”
Oliver was charged with driving while intoxicated and unlawfully carrying a weapon after another motorist saw a car swerving through lanes and called 911. Police made Oliver perform a sobriety test and he was arrested.
According to Aaron Wilson from the Houston Chronicle, Oliver’s attorney Gary Patterson said Oliver wasn’t intoxicated nor was he drinking.
“The report that there was a beer can between his legs was totally inaccurate,” Patterson told Wilson. “He blew a triple-zero on breathalyzer. Blood tests were all negative.”
The Bills released a statement on Wednesday in support of Oliver.
“We are pleased with the ruling today regarding Ed Oliver,” the statement read. “We supported and worked with Ed throughout the offseason program as it was a priority for us to allow the legal process to play out. We appreciate Ed’s honesty and communication with us. With his name cleared of all charges, he can now turn his full attention on the upcoming training camp and season.”
Patterson said that Oliver experienced significant frustration during the legal process and didn’t think the investigation in his case was performed to high standard.
“We feel the cops didn’t do a good job with this investigation,” Patterson said. “Ed is thankful for the fans that didn’t rush to judgment and believed in his innocence. He feels vindicated, but he also feels somewhat violated because he had to go through this.” https://www.syracuse.com/buffalo-bills/2020/07/bills-ed-oliver-felt-somewhat-violated-by-police-treatment-in-dwi-arrest.html
