Time to move on for Green Bay Packers safety coach Darren Perry. He will have to pay roughly $960 after being convicted of driving under the influence. Since it was a first-time offense, it is considered as an ordinance violation, not a crime.

According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, "Perry, 48, will lose his driving privileges for eight months, effective July 27. His lawyer, Patrick Brennan, asked for the delay, saying preparation for the start of the season is to begin, and immediate loss of his license would adversely affect Perry’s ability to work."

The 48-year-old was arrested in December 2016, in Green Bay. His blood test showed an alcohol level of .21 percent, according to his lawyer, Patrick Brennan. 

He spent 15 seasons in the NFL as a coach, eight of them were with the Packers.
