Earlier this week, Ryan Mallett found himself handcuffed and being hauled off to jail on a charge of driving while intoxicated after an accident in Springdale, Arkansas.
Police spoke with the former NFL quarterback and “observed him to have bloodshot watery eyes and could smell a strong odor of intoxicants,” the officer said in the report.
He told police that he had one beer, even though he crossed the center line. He would go on to fail a field sobriety test and a Breath Alcohol Test.
“He was placed under arrest at the accident scene and taken to the Springdale City Jail. There, he was given a BAC test, which showed his blood-alcohol level at 0.081, the affidavit said. The legal limit in Arkansas is 0.08.
Police said he blew the first sample without a problem, but that it took three more tries to get a second sample.
Mallett was also issued a citation for careless and prohibited driving.”
Bodycam footage was obtained showing his conversation with arresting officers.
He was released on $800 bond.
