Following DWI arrest, former QB Vince Young says he's not guilty

Texas native and former NFL quarterback Vince Young was arrested for allegedly driving while intoxicated in early February, 2019 in Missouri City. However, Young says he is innocent. He made the statement during an appearance at the TRISTAR Houston show. "It's just an allegation," the former Heisman Trophy runner-up said when speaking about the incident.

Young, who first played football at Madison High School in Houston, also responded to the DWI allegations on Twitter by pledging to "make sure this never happens again." He went on to apologize to his family, friends, and fans in the statement he made via social media. After the arrest occurred, the Pro Bowl honoree was booked on $500 bond and subsequently released. This isn't the first time Young was charged with this type of behavior.

In 2016, Young was arrested for same offense while in Austin after he was observed driving erratically on a highway. During the 2016 incident, he was subjected to a field sobriety test, which he failed. He also admitted to consuming several bottles of beer before getting behind the wheel. Prior to retiring from the NFL in 2014, Young helped the University of Texas score a victory in a game against USC in the 2006 Rose Bowl.

While making his statement about the arrest, Young also expressed confidence in his lawyer. As for what an attorney may do in a similar situation involving a DWI charge, one possible option is to question the reason for stopping the vehicle in the first place. Building a defense against charges of this nature may also involve questioning test results or presenting evidence of medical reasons for driving behaviors. In some instances, a lawyer might make an argument for dismissing or reducing charges.

  1. When I got myself into a big mess, Mr. Ross helped me get an amazing deal and now only a few years later I have my life back. He's very professional and gets to know his clients because he genuinely cares. And his staff keep the same level of professionalism. Very highly recommend!

  2. John "Tony" Ross Jr. is hands down the go to man if you need a juvenile defense attorney. He is professional but yet treats you like a friend. Tony really listened to our concerns. He worked hard to get us just about everything we could have hoped for and the charges significantly lessened. He went above and beyond to make sure my family member was treated fairly and with dignity. If you have a child or grandchild in trouble with the law, don't shop around. Call John "Tony" Ross Jr.

  3. Hands down the best attorney in this area! Tony went above and far beyond what we could have expected. If you are in need of legal assistance, he is definitely the way to go.

  4. Tony Ross is excellent, and was a very educated expert in having my case examined and reviewed to get it downgraded...the charge downgraded from a DWI to an obstruction of a highway passage because of the talented Mr. Anthony "Tony" Ross, and Ross Law Offices, P.C.! I was very pleased to not have the original charge of a DWI on record and satisfied of the result of no DWI. Would highly recommend Ross Law Offices, P.C.! Good luck, but who needs luck with Tony Ross!

  5. Mr. Tony Ross is an amazing attorney. My son made some poor choices and needed legal assistance. Mr. Ross was able to help us keep him out of jail and the charges off his record. We are forever grateful that our son has a second chance!
