Vince Young was arrested and discharged from Fort Bend County Jail on a $500 bail Tuesday. The former Texas quarterback was arrested in Fort Bend County after being suspected for drunk driving.
The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Department told the Houston Chronicle that Young’s black Cadillac was stopped at an intersection with the hazard lights on early Monday morning. He failed several field sobriety tests.
It was Young’s second arrest in three years on drunken driving charges. He pleaded no contest and was fined $300 after a January 2016 arrest. He was also ordered to complete 60 hours of community service.
Young was the Heisman Trophy runner-up in 2005 and led Texas to a national championship in the Rose Bowl. Last month, he was named to the College Football Hall of Fame.
Young last played in an NFL regular-season game in 2011 when he threw four touchdowns and had nine interceptions for the Philadelphia Eagles. Young has since been on the rosters of the Buffalo Bills, Green Bay Packers and Cleveland Browns.
