SOLON -- The police report detailing the weekend arrest of former Cleveland Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar on drunken driving charges shows he refused to take a Breathalyzer test and blamed knee and ankle surgeries stemming from his professional career for not being able to perform a field sobriety test.
Police in Solon say Kosar was pulled over for speeding early Sunday and officers smelled a strong odor of alcohol. Kosar told an officer he couldn't perform the standard one-leg stand or walk and turn tests as he had undergone several surgeries on his knees and ankles "because his line couldn't block."
Kosar was arrested and his attorney entered a not guilty plea on his behalf Monday. Kosar's attorney did not immediately return a request for comment Tuesday.
