JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Brent Hawkins was arrested and charged with drunken driving after he was stopped for speeding on his way home from a night out.
The 24-year-old was arrested early Monday when deputies clocked him driving his 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe at 64 mph in a 45-mph zone, a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office report said.
He told deputies he had three vodka and orange juice drinks during the night, the report said. He also told the arresting deputy that he had a previous drunken-driving arrest in Illinois.
``I noticed while speaking to him that he had the odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath and that his eyes were bloodshot and watery,'' the arresting deputy wrote in the report.
Hawkins refused to take a breath test after he was brought to the Duval County Jail, a sheriff's spokesman said.
The Jaguars had no immediate comment Tuesday on the arrest.
Hawkins, a fifth-round pick out of Illinois State, had four sacks for the Jaguars this season, which ended Saturday with a 31-20 playoff loss to the New England Patriots.
Hawkins is the 10th Jacksonville player arrested in the last two years. Five of the arrests involved alcohol, two were for drug possession, two were for gun charges and one was for battery. Four of the arrests came in the last three months.
