Former Cowboys, Arkansas QB charged with drunken driving

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Former Dallas Cowboys and Arkansas
quarterback Clint Stoerner was charged with drunken driving and two
other misdemeanors after being stopped early Saturday morning for
driving a car playing loud music, police said.

"There was a distinct odor of intoxicants on his breath [and]
his eyes were bloodshot and glassy. Stoerner swayed when he stood
still," the police report said.

Police administered a field sobriety test, which "indicated
that he was intoxicated," and Stoerner was arrested and taken to
the Washington County Jail, police said.

At the jail, Stoerner refused to breathe into a breath-analysis
machine.

He was charged with driving while intoxicated, violation of the
implied-consent law requiring a driver to submit to a
breath-analysis test if requested by police, and violation of the
city's motor-vehicle sound limit ordinance. All misdemeanors.

A Little Rock resident, Stoerner was a Cowboys backup for three
seasons after playing for Arkansas from 1996 through 1999. He still
holds many Razorback passing records.

A Washington County Jail report said Stoerner was released later
Saturday on $880 bond. He faces a Monday court date on the
sound-ordinance charge, and is to appear in court on Nov. 5 on the
DWI charge.
