Texans safety Marcus Coleman charged with DWI

HOUSTON (AP) -- Houston Texans safety Marcus Coleman was charged with driving while intoxicated early Thursday after his damaged car was spotted partially on a curb and within a lane of traffic on a Houston street, police said.

Coleman, 29, was booked into the city jail and within hours was freed on $500 bond.

Police spokesman John Cannon said an officer was dispatched to a reported traffic hazard about 1:30 a.m. Thursday. When he arrived, he found Coleman's car and identified the driver.

A DWI task force unit was called to the scene and field sobriety tests were performed. Cannon said the tests determined the driver was intoxicated and he was ``offered the breath test, which he refused.''

Coleman, who late last month was moved to free safety from cornerback, faces a misdemeanor DWI charge.

The Texans acquired Coleman in the expansion draft two years ago from the New York Jets, where he played for six years.

He was a safety at Lake Highlands High School in Dallas, then started 36 straight games for Texas Tech, where he set a Southwest Conference record with four interception returns for touchdowns.

Coleman's agent, Jimmy Sexton, did not immediately return a phone message left Thursday by The Associated Press.

Jesus, when will this end?

How many DUI's have NFL players now accumulated? 100000000000000000?

All the pressure of making millions must really get to them, so they turn to the bottle for support. Poor guys...

I think these reports are just made off a template nowadays that looks something like this...

NFL player (insert player name) was picked up on (insert date and time) for (insert crime). He was fined (insert amount) and returned home to his millions of dollars. (Insert player name) says he apoligizes to his teammates, family, and fans. "This was a wakeup call for me and I am looking forward to moving on in my life and career," says (insert player name.) He is not expected to face any jail time.
