Dolphins corner Will Allen charged with DUI

Miami Dolphins cornerback Will Allen has been arrested and

charged with driving under the influence in Miami Beach.

Jail records show Allen was arrested Saturday and was being held

at the Pretrial Detention Center in Miami on $1,000 bond.

A spokesman for the Dolphins declined comment, saying the team

only recently learned about the incident.

Messages left with the Miami Beach Police Department were not

immediately returned. The records did not indicate whether he has

an attorney.

Allen is a nine-year NFL veteran. He missed the final 10 games

last season because of a knee injury that required surgery.

The New York Giants drafted Allen in the first round and he

played five seasons there before being signed by the Dolphins.
