Former NFL quarterback Vince Young was pulled over at 12:36 AM on Monday, and at that time was arrested for DWI. He was booked and then released on $2,000 bail.
Young was described by police in the affidavit as “uncooperative and polite.” Before getting in the car, Young admitted to police in the affidavit, he had three to four bottles of beer at the W Hotel that night. When asked by officers what time it was, Young said in the affidavit that he thought it was “early, about 2:30,” when the actual time was 11:23 p.m.
According to the affidavit, the officer noticed a strong smell of alcohol on Young, who refused a preliminary breath test and blood test. Police said his speech was mumbled and slurred.
Young, 33, lead the University of Texas Longhorns to a national championship via a Rose Bowl victory in 2006. He was drafted in the first round by the Tennessee Titans.
Young currently works for the University of Texas as diversity and community engagement officer.
