Former Dallas Cowboys and Arkansas QB Charged with DWI

Clint Stoerner, former Dallas Cowboys and University of Arkansas quarterback, was arrested for Arkansas DWI in Fayetteville. Stoerner was initially stopped around 2:00 am for playing music too loudly in his car. Police said they could hear noise from inside the vehicle from 30 feet away.

Police noticed a distinct odor of alcohol and said Stoerner swayed and that his eyes were bloodshot and glassy. He failed a field sobriety test and was booked at the Washington County Jail. There, Stoerner, 29, refused to take a breath test. He was charged with three misdemeanors: driving while intoxicated, failing to adhere to implied consent laws by not submitting to a breath test and violating the city’s auto noise limit.

Stoerner played for the Arkansas Razorbacks from 1996 to 1999, and he established many passing records. He played three seasons as backup quarterback for the NFL Dallas Cowboys.

Stoerner was released after posting bond. He faces arraignment for the DWI charge November 5.
