Kindle charged with DUI

Immediately after Sergio Kindle was selected by the Ravens in the second round of this year's NFL draft, he told reporters on a conference call that he was going to be the league's Rookie of the Year.

Things haven't gone as the former Texas linebacker had hoped, however.

In late July, Kindle fell down two flights of stairs and fractured his skull. He was put on the non-football injury list, ending his 2010 season before it started.

Last week, Kindle was informed by doctors that he might not be able to play next season.

Then, according to a report in The Sun, Kindle was arrested early Sunday morning and changed with driving under the influence.

Kindle reportedly was pulled over at 4:09 a.m.Sunday morning after a Howard County police officer observed his vehicle weaving while he drove. He was ticketed for speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol and failure to obey traffic control devices.

The 23-year old was taken into custody and released after posting $10,000 bond.

This isn't Kindle's first alcohol-related driving incident. He was also arrested for DUI in 2007.

"I just made a poor decision of getting in the car after having some drinks, and that was my fault," Kindle said of his earlier arrest on a conference call back in April.

Kindle also had a third incident which took place while he was driving, although this one did not involve alcohol.

Back in June 2009, Kindle was text messaging while driving and drove his car into an apartment complex.

It's been a rough handful of months for Kindle, but it appears things might get worse for the Ravens' top 2010 draft pick before they get any better.
