Former Cleveland Browns Bernie Kosar quarterback refused a breathalyzer test when he was pulled over for speeding on Sunday, Sept. 29, according to Solon Police.
When asked by the officer who pulled him over to take the portable breath test he replied that he was told "never to take those," according to the report.
Kosar was pulled over for going 74 MPH in a 50 MPH zone. When the officer asked for his license, he handed him two credit cards with his name on them. When asked again, he pointed at the cards as though he already supplied them.
Kosar tried to recite the alphabet from "E" to "W." He responded: E, F, G, P, L, M, N, O, Q and "from there it trailed on with more letters that were not correct and ended at X," according to the police report.
The officer asked Kosar if he had any problems that would prevent him from taking a field sobriety test. Kosar said he had many surgeries on his knees and ankles because he had a "line that couldn't block."
Kosar was charged with drunken driving after he was stopped for speeding on Sunday, Sept. 29 around 2:45 a.m. on US 422 in Solon.
Following openings in Avon, Parma, Middleburg Heights and North Olmsted, the staff had to go out of its way to remind the public that the place had an affordable food menu to accompany those spirits. That hasn't been the case in Mayfield Heights, human resources manager and spokeswoman Kas Firdman said.
"I don't even know why, honestly," she said. "We never advertised as a restaurant, only as a bar because it's easier to attract customers with inexpensive drinks than food."
Still, the lunch crowd has been a hit at the place known for a menu with several food and drink options for $2 to $9. Patrons have been enjoying sliders for $2, wings for $5 and wraps for $5 or $6.
