Former college football star Ryan Mallett was arrested for driving while intoxicated on Tuesday … after the former NFL quarterback crashed his car in Arkanas … TMZ Sports has confirmed.
Officials say 31-year-old Mallett was involved in a two-car collision in Springdale around 6:30 p.m. We were told that his car was crossing the center line when he was driving.
Police officers tested his blood alcohol level … and he blew a .08, prison officials say.
Along with DWI, Mallett was also cited for carelessly prohibited driving to swing over the center line.
So far no official comment from Mallett. We are working to get more information about the arrest.
It couldn't be a worse time for the former New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens QB – who recently accepted an invitation to the XFL draft held in October.  Remember, Vince McMahon famously said he would ban all players with a criminal record from who played in his league during a media event 2018.
So, the question. .. will Vince stick with his weapons and invite Mallett – or will he rethink his attitude?
Mallett was a star at the University of Arkansas after moving from Michigan, he was a third-round draft pick of the New England Patriots 2011 NFL Draft … and also played for the Baltimore Ravens and Houston Texans.
