Apparently Donald Driver's father ran into a little more trouble earlier this week.
Marvin Driver Jr., the father of Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver, was in a Houston hospital on Wednesday with injuries his family said were inflicted by two police officers.
"Mr. Driver Jr. is able to communicate through notes where he has described the torture he went through at the hand of HPD officers," according to the family's statement.
Marvin Driver's family showed reporters photos of Driver in his hospital bed with breathing tubes in his mouth. The family also showed the notes by Driver that alleged that he knew at least one of the officers and that they took him behind a gas station, where they beat him and forced an object down his throat.
Driver's family also alleged that the arresting officers made disparaging remarks about his son.
This is one of those stories that as you are reading it you tilt your head and say to yourself..."really?" Anyway, Donald is spending time this week down there with his Dad so let's hope his old man starts making a recovery. He is expected back in time to play against the Saints on Monday Night.
