This isn't Young's first run-in with the law.

In January 2016, he was arrested on a DWI charge in Austin after police said he was seen weaving on a highway.

Young was unable to complete a field sobriety test and admitted to drinking three or four bottles of beer before driving.

Young, who played football for Houston's Madison High School, led the University of Texas to a national championship victory over USC in the 2006 Rose Bowl, was runner-up for the Heisman Trophy and went on to play six seasons in the NFL, twice earning Pro Bowl honors.

He retired from the NFL in 2014.
