Daryl Worley, released by Eagles, faces charges including DUI, weapons violations

Former star West Virginia cornerback Daryl Worley, who was released by the Philadelphia Eagles after being arrested early Sunday morning, faces DUI, weapons and disorderly conduct charges, according to a report by the Philadelphia Inquirer's Les Bowen.

Worley was allegedly "combative" with officers, who recovered a gun from the scene.

The Eagles announced the release of Worley hours after news broke of his arrest which occurred at 6 am.

The team acquired Worley in a trade with the Panthers last month.


Sources say that Worley was reportedly found passed out in a vehicle and 911 was called.

Worley grew up in North Philadelphia on Broad Street and is a graduate of Penn Charter School, which is also Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan's alma mater. Carolina received wide receiver Torrey Smith in the deal. He was the Panthers' third-round draft pick in 2016 and started 25 games over two seasons.

The Philadelphia Police Department responded to PennLive's request for information to confirm Worley's arrest and charge but did not provide more details.

On Monday, the Philadelphia Police Department announced Worley, 23, a North Philly native who attended William Penn Charter School and now resides in Swedesboro NJ, would be charged with DUI, violation of the uniform firearms act and disorderly conduct. It carries a penalty of $10,000 and a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.
