Former Cleveland Browns and Miami Hurricanes quarterback Bernie Kosar was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol in Solon, Ohio, early Sunday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported.

“Kosar was pulled over for speeding on SOM Center Road at 2:42 a.m., and police officers smelled a strong odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle,” Cleveland.com reported, citing a news release from the Solon Police Department. “He took sobriety tests and was then taken to the Solon Police Department without incident.”

The Miami Herald reached Kosar by text at 1 p.m. Sunday and he wrote back, “I am fine.” He said in his text that he was at the Cleveland Browns football game, but released no other information.

The news release described Kosar as the driver of a black Cadillac. It said Kosar posted a $500 bond, and his Bedford Municipal Court date is at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.

“The Solon Police Department will not release any video of the stop involving Mr. Kosar until the disposition for the case has been finalized,” the release stated.
