Young, 32, was pulled over on Sunday night after his sport utility vehicle was seen moving erratically and drifting between lanes on a major highway running through Austin, a police arrest affidavit said.

Young has not spoken to the media about the incident.

Young works as a diversity and community engagement officer at the University of Texas, where he played in college, leading the Longhorns to a national championship with a victory in the Rose Bowl in 2006. He entered the National Football League in 2006 with the Tennessee Titans, where he played most of his six-season career.
