Bernie Kosar charged with drunken driving

CLEVELAND

Former Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar was arrested early Sunday on drunken-driving charges in suburban Cleveland.

Police in Solon say Kosar was pulled over for speeding around 2:45 a.m., and officers smelled a strong odor of alcohol.

The police statement says Kosar took sobriety tests and was taken to jail. He was alone in the car.

Kosar, who earned Parade magazine All-American honors while a quarterback at Boardman High School in the early 1980s, didn’t immediately return a phone call seeking comment.

The 49-year-old Kosar, who led the University of Miami to the national championship in 1983-84, 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.
