Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - Baltimore Ravens rookie linebacker Sergio
Kindle was arrested and charged with driving under the influence.
The Sun reported Sunday evening that the Texas product was pulled over by
Howard County police just after 4 a.m. (et), when officers observed his
vehicle swerving on U.S. Route 1 in a suburb south of Baltimore.
Kindle was cited for speeding, driving under the influence and failure to
observe traffic control devices. He was later released on $10,000 bond,
according to the paper.
The Ravens' 2010 second-round draft pick told the Sun late Sunday that he was
driving home with friends, one of whom needed to catch an early flight. He had
also already apologized to the team, which won 20-10 at Cleveland earlier
The 23-year-old has been forced to sit out for the whole season after
suffering injuries to his head when he apparently fell down two flights
of stairs at a private residence in Austin, Texas in July, shortly before
the start of training camp.
He has been on the non-football injury list since then, and has been taking
physical therapy at the Ravens' training facility in Owings Mills. However,
his football future is still in doubt.
