Back on May 10, Los Angeles Rams S T.J. McDonald was arrested in a non-alcohol-related DUI incident.

Today, TMZ Sports is reporting that the L.A. City Attorney's Office is bringing DUI charges:

...The L.A. City Attorney's Office is charging him with non-alcohol related DUI...

As we previously reported, the 25-year-old was arrested on May 10th after crashing into a parked car. Law enforcement sources tell us they believe medication was involved.

The City Attorney charged McDonald with one count of driving under the influence of drugs. Still no word on what the drug or drugs.

He's facing up to 6 months jail time if convicted -- but it's extremely rare for a first-time DUI offender, like McDonald, to get locked up.

Neither the NFL nor the Rams have disciplined him yet.

The Rams released a bit of a boilerplate statement following the charges:

We are aware the city attorney filed charges today against T.J. McDonald stemming from his arrest in May. As this is an ongoing legal matter, it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.
