AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - Former NFL quarterback and University of Texas football star Vince Young has been arrested in Austin on a charge of driving while intoxicated, police said on Monday.

Young, 32, was pulled over on Sunday night after his sport utility vehicle was seen moving erratically and drifting between lanes on a major highway running through Austin, a police arrest affidavit said.

Young has not spoken to the media about the incident.

Young works as a diversity and community engagement officer at the University of Texas, where he played in college, leading the Longhorns to a national championship with a victory in the Rose Bowl in 2006. He entered the National Football League in 2006 with the Tennessee Titans, where he played most of his six-season career.
