David Holbert, a former football player at Brentwood Academy and the University of Tennessee, is in Davidson County jail after being arrested on driving under the influence and drug charges early Thursday morning.

According to a Metro Nashville Police Department affidavit, Holbert told police he had been drinking at the Tin Roof on Demonbreun after he was pulled over for allegedly driving recklessly. During a search of his vehicle, police allege that they found 2.6 grams of marijuana, rolling papers and two oxycodone pills.

Holbert denied a Breathalyzer test, but on the “walk and turn” field sobriety test he “could not perform the first nine steps without falling to the ground,” according to police.

He was also charged with driving on a suspended license, which he had been issued state citations for in February and August. Holbert is currently in jail on $6,000 bond.

During his senior season at BA in 2003, the Associated Press selected Holbert as an all-state player. He rushed for more than 700 yards and 22 touchdowns as a fullback and also recorded 80 tackles as a linebacker.

While at UT in Knoxville, Holbert played in 34 games with one start. He missed his entire senior year with a knee injury.

This isn’t the first time Holbert has gotten into trouble with the law. He was charged with disorderly conduct in 2006 after being involved in a fight that included Houston Texans running back and UT teammate Arian Foster.

I think the boy was a scholarship student from the hinterlands.

Anyone fighting with Arian Foster, is sure to lose in many ways. This would appear
to be a "never learn" situation. Only 6,000 bond, , seems lite to this reader?

Seems there were two paths that could have been taken from that fight in 2006. It seems that Foster took one path, while Holbert chose the other - each is reaping the rewards / consequences of the decision he made.

Hahaha..just another idiot athlete who returns to his roots.

Hey Jughead...!!!! Know the facts before you give your Romneyized opinion!!! What are his roots ignorant?? Trailer trash? ... No... those sound more like your roots! The article wasnt quite right. He and Arian are still best friends. Have you looked at the pic of his career ending injury? And he runs a very successful business at the moment. He just happened to be out on halloween at a celebration that ended wrong. I could name a lot of other GREATS who made the same mistake. Let's start with Steve McNair, etc... Even though you probably made the same mistake, don't put yourself in with the GREAT's because evidently you don't really have a life. But then... misery loves company.
