Former NFL quarterback Vince Young spent Sunday night in jail after being arrested for DWI, according to a report from FOX7. Young has since been released. More details:

It all started at around 11:30 p.m. on January 24. In an affidavit, an Austin police officer reports that he saw a 2016 white Chevy Silverado at a red light while northbound at the intersection of the 600 block of I-35 Service Road and 6th Street.

The officer followed the vehicle for a short time as it moved north. The driver of the Chevy then entered onto 35 at the 1500 block without signaling intent to change lanes.

The affidavit states that the officer noticed the driver drifting within its lane at varying speeds.

APD tells FOX 7 that the vehicle was pulled over at an empty parking lot near 51st  Street and that's when the sobriety tests were administered.

The officer in the affidavit states that Young had a "strong" alcoholic beverage odor and was "swaying" with "glassy" eyes and that his speech was "mumbled, slurred."

The affidavit states that Young admitted to drinking at least three or four bottles of beer before driving and also misstated the time of the arrest.

The affidavit says that Young was "polite" but "uncooperative."

Here's the mugshot:

The Eagles signed Young during the 2011 offseason. Philadelphia fans will always cringe in memory of his "Dream Team" quote. Young never appeared in an NFL regular season game again after leaving the Eagles.

Young isn't the only former Eagles quarterback to be arrested for drunk driving. Franchise leading passer Donovan McNabb was arrested for DUI in both 2014 and 2015. It doesn't stop there, either. Kevin Kolb was reportedly arrested for boating while intoxicated in 2014.

Former Eagles quarterbacks should probably put the booze down.
