Jerome Simpson could be prison bound.

Back in 2012, Simpson received a suspended sentence and 3 years of probation for his marijuana maildrop. A plea deal where Simpson accepted a lesser conviction allowed him to avoid serious prison time. At the conclusion of the 2012 trial, Judge Gregory Bartlett warned Simpson, "One stupid lapse of judgment and I can wipe it all away. That's the lesson [Jerome Simpson] needs to tell people. Think before you do something stupid."

If Kentucky determines Simpson violated his probation terms, which forbid him from using alcohol, guns, and drugs for 3 years, he could end up serving his suspended 3 year sentence in a Kentucky prison.

Arrested in the early hours of Sunday morning, Simpson was found next to his stalled vehicle on the Interstate when a State Trooper responded to a call about a stalled car blocking traffic. The Trooper noticed Simpson had slurred speech and watery eyes. At that point Simpson was given a field sobriety test, blowing a .09, which led to his probable cause of driving while impaired arrest.

Simpson has released a public statement, "I sincerely apologize for the attention that I have brought to the fans, community and myself."

From CBS:

A copy of the arrest report, obtained by CBSSports.com, shows that Simpson was in a Dodge Charger stalled on the side of the road. Simpson exited his vehicle after a trooper pulled up, at which point the trooper "observed signs of intoxication including watery eyes and slightly slurred speech."
Simpson performed sobriety tests and was then placed under arrest for DWI. Simpson was taken to Hennepin County jail where he refused to take a breathalyzer test
