HOUSTON -- An attorney for Jacoby Jones said he expects evidence to exonerate the Houston Texans wide receiver, who was arrested early Sunday on suspicion of drunken driving.

"I am fairly confident the evidence will agree with Jacoby's assertion that he was not intoxicated," attorney Chip Lewis said in a story on Houston television station KRIV's Web site. "He agreed to take every test that he was asked."

Jones was stopped near downtown Houston early Sunday. He was released on $500 bail.

Jones played in 14 games last year, starting three, and had 15 catches for 149 yards. He also had 30 punt returns for 286 yards.

Lewis planned to get a copy of a video of the arrest Tuesday.
