Bernie Kosar arrested on suspicion of DUI

Former Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar has been open about the troubles he’s faced since the end of his playing career, including brain trauma and financial issues.

It looks like he has another problem to deal with. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Kosar was arrested early Sunday morning and accused of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Kosar was pulled over for speeding at 2:42 a.m. ET by officers from the Solon Police Department in suburban Cleveland. Officers smelled alcohol coming from the vehicle and administered sobriety tests at the scene, according to a press release from the police. He was then taken to a police station without incident.

Among the troubles that Kosar has discussed were issues with alcohol and pain medication, although Kosar indicated they were in the past in a 2009 interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Concerns about Kosar’s well-being were front and center after a 2012 radio interview that featured Kosar slurring his words and speaking incoherently. Kosar has since returned to broadcasting work, although not without incident this preseason when he was quite harsh in his assessment of the St. Louis Rams.

    Can it get any worse for the Browns. Their must be a jinx in play or something.

    I hope Bernie gets the help he needs. Growing up, Bernie was my favorite player.

    Sad to see this play out. Get help Bernie, you need it.

  13. fdugrad says: Sep 29, 2013 2:31 PM

    This is as sad as it is an inevitable story. It is extremely hard to believe The Browns organization didn’t observe the obvious behavioral signs. I hope they help him.

    You can go thru rehab as many times as you want, but you have to stay stopped for recovery to work.

    Bless me father for I have sinned. I got another dwi today. He should be allowed to. He did play for the browns. I think everyone that plays for them goes to rehab.

    to the browns fan that says kosar was right I agree our rams backup qbs are terrible but like most people would agree you think it you don’t say it, however coming from a drunk I guess you have to take it with a grain of salt. good luck browns and their fans kosar on the other hand you can bite me !!
