While utterly failing his field sobriety test before his arrest, former Cleveland Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar blamed his offensive line when asked if he had any physical limitations that would prevent him from doing standard sobriety tests.
Kosar was eluding to his many knee and ankle surgeries that might make it difficult to pass such tests as standing on one leg or a walk-and-turn, according to the police report, via CBSSports.com.
The sh*tfaced Kosar, who played for the Browns from 1985-1996, also had some trouble reciting the alphabet.
The officer asked Kosar to recite the alphabet beginning at ‘E’ and ending at ‘W.’ Kosar made it three letters before he slipped up, telling the officer, “E, F, G, P, L, M, N, O, Q…”
Kosar was pulled over for going 75 in a 55 mph zone just before 3 AM, and among the aforementioned, there were other signs that he was so, so very drunk:
Kosar handed the officer two credit cards when he was asked for his ID. Kosar also refused a breathalyzer test, according to the police report.
Bernie has since pleaded not guilty to the DUI charge and will appear next in court on Dec. 9th.
