Former Tennessee Titans quarterback, Vince Young, has been arrested in Texas.

Travis County jail records show that the 32-young former Texas star was booked shortly after midnight Monday on a misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated. His bond was set at $2,000.

Austin police spokesman Ivan Ramos said Young was stopped late Sunday north of downtown alongside Interstate 35.

According to CBS affiliate KEYE, Young admitted to drinking 3 to 4 bottles of beer before driving.  

Young played six seasons in the NFL after a brilliant career at Texas, leading the Longhorns to a national title in 2005. He now works for the University of Texas promoting diversity and community engagement.

University spokesman Gary Susswein said the school had no immediate comment.
