St. Louis Rams defensive end Robert Quinn was arrested earlier this month on suspicion of drunk driving, according to a report from KSDK.com.

According to Officer Andy Haarmann, a police spokesman, the incident occurred just before 5:40 a.m. on July 10. Police were responding to a single vehicle accident on the exit ramp of eastbound I-270 at Washington/Elizabeth.

Quinn was charged with DWI and two additional traffic charges. He was released from jail that morning after posting a cash bond and the police spokesman said he cooperated with police.
