The HBO documentary series Hard Knocks is following the L.A. Rams in their inaugural season in a few months, but the off-the-field drama has already begun.

Los Angeles Rams safety T. J. McDonald was arrested yesterday in Woodland Hills after hitting a parked car. The police arrested him under suspicion of driving under the influence, though an LAPD rep told the LA Times that "it wasn't alcohol." TMZ speculates that it he could have been on prescription meds.

The Rams player and former USC Trojan had been working out with the team at their complex in Oxnard, though official training camps don't start for a few more weeks. McDonald was released on bail and awaits a June court date. The team released a boilerplate response, saying they are collecting more info before doling out any sanctions.

Never a dull moment in the NFL off season.
