Malcolm Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Former Cleveland Browns and Miami Dolphins quarterback Bernie Kosar was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol on Sunday. We have all the details.

Former Cleveland Browns and Miami Dolphins quarterback Bernie Kosar was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol on Sunday. According to the arrest document filed by the arresting officer, Kosar was stopped around 2:45 a.m. ET in Solon, Ohio for speeding. The document suggests that Kosar was going at a "steady speed" of 74 mph in a 50 mph construction zone with workers present.

After pulling over Kosar's black Cadillac, Officer Scott McElroy reportedly asked Kosar to present his driver's license. At this point, Kosar reportedly handed the officer two credit cards. McElroy said he observed slurred speech and a strong odor of alcoholic beverages at this time.

When asked to exit the vehicle and perform a field sobriety test (after a reported colossal failure to recite the alphabet from letters 'E' through 'W'), Kosar complied, but was unable to stand on one leg or perform the walk and turn test. When asked if there was anything preventing him from taking these tests, Kosar reportedly suggested he could not due to multiple knee and ankle surgeries because his "line couldn't block."

Kosar was then arrested and officially charged with OVI -- operating a vehicle while under the influence. Kosar played for the Browns for a full eight seasons before being released and signed by the Dallas Cowboys and later the Miami Dolphins. He was elected to the 1987 Pro Bowl and was an All-Pro that year, as well. He was with the Cowboys for their Super Bowl XXVII victory, though he was not the starter at this time.
