First Posted: 03/18/10 06:12 AM ET Updated: 05/25/11 04:05 PM ET

UPDATE: McCray has deleted the account (but you can still see screen grabs of the tweets below) and apologized for his comments.

EARLIER:

New Orleans Saints defensive end Bobby McCray had not tweeted since December 10, but the lineman is back in full force following a Tuesday morning DWI arrest. McCray took to Twitter this morning to deride the "bogus charge." Intriguingly, the Saint is employing a novel defense argument in claiming that he is guilty merely of "DWP..driving with Pizza.."

McCray also wasted no time to insult the arresting officer, writing that he "was a short guy with a Napolean [sic] complex." In addition to claiming that his fiancé "was feeding me pizza driving home," McCray says he was pulled over "for doing 80 in a 60" and insists he was sober at the time. His final message (so far) is a call to action: "Lawyers mount up, we got some work to do!!!!!" It remains to be seen if McCray's tweets will help him in the court room.
