Ravens rookie Sergio Kindle's troubled first season took another hit Sunday morning when he was arrested and charged with drunken driving in Howard County, an incident the player called a "mistake."

According to court records and police, Kindle, 23, was pulled over at 4:09 a.m. after an officer observed his vehicle weaving as he drove northbound on Route 1 near Route 32 in Savage.

The former University of Texas star, who was driving a vehicle with Texas plates, was ticketed for speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol and failure to obey traffic control devices.

Sherry Llewellyn, a Howard County police spokeswoman, said Kindle was arrested without incident. Records show he was taken into custody and released after posting $10,000 bond.

Reached Sunday night, Kindle said he was driving home with friends, one of whom had to catch an early flight. He said he had informed one of the team's security personnel about the arrest, and apologized to the team.

"I just want to apologize to the organization, because I don't want to bring a negative light to the team," he said. "It was my mistake. I can't take it back now. I don't know what's going to happen from here."

So I'm starting to believe that when he fell at his house earlier this year and nearly cracked his skull and had to be put on IR, that he might have been a little drunk.

"Driving home with friends????" Police should have ticketed the friends also for being so stupid to be passengers....

Christmas night a car crashed into a barbershop at approx 2:30am in Dumfries, killing the driver and 2 passengers...More smart passengers who paid the ultimate price....

Could have happened in this case also....

And Amazon says Kindle is the most popular xmas gift this year.

I think that will change after this DUI.
