Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar found himself behind bars on Sunday after being arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.
Cleveland police said Kosar was pulled over for speeding at around 2:45 a.m. When the acting officer approached the vehicle, they reported a strong odor of alcohol being emitted.
Kosar was then asked to get out of the vehicle and undergo field sobriety tests, which he failed, and was subsequently taken to jail. There were no other passengers in the vehicle.
The 49-year-old Kosar has publicly talked about how head injuries sustained during his NFL career have affected his speech, making him sometimes slur his words. He has also been addicted to pain medications, gone through a divorce and had financial troubles.
There is some good news for Browns fans, though. The Browns evened their record to 2-2 after upsetting the Cincinnati Bengals, 17-6, at FirstEnergy Stadium. They are now 2-0 since trading star running back Trent Richardson to the Colts.
