Redskins CB Byron Westbrook was arrested early Friday and charged with driving under the influence, according to a spokeswoman for the Charles County (Md.) Sheriff's Department.

After a sheriff's deputy saw Westbrook's Mercedes cross the center line of Route 5 several times around 2 a.m. Friday, the deputy pulled Westbrook over, department spokeswoman Diane Richardson said. After smelling alcohol, the deputy administered field sobriety tests, which Westbrook failed.

The Redskins signed Westbrook in May 2007 as an undrafted free agent. He played in 15 games last season after spending his first two seasons on the team's practice squad.
