Jacksonville Jaguars player Brent Hawkins was arrested and charged with drunken driving after he was stopped for speeding.

The 24-year-old defensive end / linebacker was pulled over for speeding after being clocked driving 64 mph in a 45-mph zone early Monday morning. The police report also stated he admitted to the deputies that he had three vodka and orange juice drinks earlier in the evening.

In addition, Hawkins told the Jacksonville Sheriff deputy that he had a previous drunken-driving arrest in Illinois.

"I noticed while speaking to him that he had the odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath and that his eyes were bloodshot and watery," the arresting deputy wrote.

Hawkins was taken to the Duval County Jail after refusing to take a Breathalyzer test.

Team officials could not be reached for comment.
