Former Browns QB Bernie Kosar — most recently seen in this space earning the ire of St. Louis head coach Jeff Fisher — was flagged for speeding by Solon, OH cops early Sunday morning. The ensuing police report suggests — at the very least — that Kosar hasn’t quite forgiven the Browns for a lack of pass protection. From the Cleveland Plain-Dealer’s Patrick Cooley :
The report — obtained from the Bedford Municipal Court on Tuesday — said Kosar’s black Cadillac was pulled over at 2:42 a.m. Sunday for driving 74 miles per hour U.S. Route 422, which has a speed limit of 50. The officer who stopped Kosar said he smelled a strong odor of alcohol coming from both the car and Kosar.
When asked for identification, Kosar handed a police officer two credit cards, and when asked if he had a driver’s license, the former Browns quarterback pointed to one of the cards as if it was his license, the report said.
When asked if he had anything to drink, Kosar told an officer that he was helping a friend out that evening, the report said.
He was given several field sobriety tests, according to the report. He was asked to recite the alphabet, which he was unable to do, and was unable to smoothly pursue an object with his eyes, the report said.
The officer asked Kosar if he had any problems that would prevent him from standing on one leg or walking and turning, and Kosar said he’s had several surgeries on his knees and ankles because his line couldn’t block, the report said.
