CB Westbrook arrested Friday for DUI

Cornerback Byron Westbrook was arrested early Friday and charged with driving under the influence. Charles County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Diane Richardson said Westbrook, 25, was pulled over about 2 a.m. on Route 5 at Lakewood Place after a deputy saw a Mercedes cross the center line several times.

Richardson said the deputy smelled alcohol and administered field sobriety tests. She said Westbrook, the brother of Eagles running back Brian Westbrook, failed and was arrested.

Byron Westbrook has been charged with driving under the influence, driving while intoxicated, negligent driving and failure to drive right of center. He was released on personal recognizance.

A message was left seeking comment from Westbrook’s agent. “We take these issues very seriously,” Redskins general manager Bruce Allen said in an e-mail. “Moving forward, we plan to meet with Byron and will continue to monitor the situation.”
