Dolphins player charged with DUI in Miami Beach

Miami Dolphins cornerback Will Allen has been charged with

driving under the influence.

Allen was arrested Saturday in Miami Beach and 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.

According to an arrest affidavit, Allen drove up to a roadway

blocked by police and told them he needed to get through. An

officer reported that Allen smelled of alcohol and had bloodshot,

watery eyes.

Records did not indicate whether he has obtained an

attorney.

A nine-year NFL veteran, Allen missed the final 10 games last

season because of a knee injury that required surgery.
