Bernie Kosar Arrested for DUI; Ex-Browns QB Was Speeding

Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar was arrested on suspicion of DUI early Sunday after cops pulled him over for speeding in Ohio.

Kosar, 49, reportedly reeked of alcohol and failed field sobriety tests after police pulled him over in Solon around 2:45 a.m. Sunday, according to Cleveland.com.

He was arrested and taken to Solon Police Department's jail. He is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday afternoon.

Kosar played quarterback for the Browns from 1985 to 1993, helping the team advance to the AFC Championship Game three times in four years. He retired from the NFL in 1996 but continued making headlines after a messy divorce, financial problems, and a reported painkiller addiction.

He has attributed many of his problems to the head injuries he sustained in football.

Most recently, Kosar worked as an announcer for the Browns. He was heavily criticized last month for comments he made about the Saint Louis Rams wide receiver Tavon Austin and third-string quarterback Kellen Clemens during a preseason game.

Kosar called Austin, who was the No. 8 overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft, "horrible," and when Clemens entered the game he said "Bless me Father for I have sinned. I have to watch him the whole fourth quarter."

Many questioned Kosar's erratic behavior, including Sports Illustrated's Peter King, who tweeted out "Were you drinking?" in reference to Kosar.

King later said he meant the tweet as hyperbole.
