Former Browns quarterback and Cleveland television annalist, Bernie Kosar will be in court Monday to answer to the charges of driving under the influence. Kosar was arrested in September of 2013 and charged with, suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.
Kosar was originally pulled over,around 2:45 a.m. ET in Solon, Ohio for speeding. He was going 74 in a 50 MPH zone and that is when the police officer asked Bernie for his drivers license. According to the report filed by officer Scott McElroy, Kosar handed him two credit cards.
It was then that the officer suspected something was wrong with Bernie. McElray said it was then when he noticed Kosar's slurred speech and a strong odor of alcoholic beverages.
Bernie then failed to recite the alphabet from letters E thru W and then he was asked to step out of the car for a field sobriety test. That is when Bernie was asked to stand on one leg and the normal array of tests the police give when they suspect a driver under the influence.
Kosar was unable to pass those tests and tried to blame the fail on the multiple knee and ankle surgeries he had because his offensive line couldn't block.
Bernie has had months to prepare for this day in court. It will be interesting to see what his defense will be once he arrives at court on Monday. Stay tuned to Cleveland Sports 360, we will keep you up to date on the Kosar DUI trial.
