Titans tight end Brandon Barden was arrested for DUI after a single-car accident in Georgia over the weekend.

According to police, Barden lost control of his car sometime before 4:30 a.m. on Saturday, and hit a ditch drain before the car flipped one and a half times, landing on its side.

The police report stated the officer at the scene could “smell a strong odor of alcohol.” When Barden refused field sobriety testing, roadside Alco-Sensor testing and state chemical testing, he was charged with a DUI, according to police. The incident happened in Lincoln County, Georgia.

Barden, who played at Vanderbilt, is from Lincolnton, Ga.

The two passengers inside the 2008 GMC Sierra refused medical treatment at the scene, police said.

Barden was charged with traffic violations that include DUI on refusal, and was booked into the jail. He was later released on bond.
