Dolphins Ronnie Brown arrested

MARIETTA, GA (AP) - Police say Miami Dolphins running back Ronnie Brown, who was in the suburban Atlanta area for his parents' anniversary, has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.

Marietta Police Officer Jennifer Murphy said Monday that the 28-year-old was arrested at 4:29 a.m. Saturday.

Brown's mother, Joyce Brown, told The Associated Press in a phone interview that Brown was in his hometown of Cartersville for her and her husband's 32nd anniversary.

She says he was pulled over for failing to use a turn signal.

She says he had eaten dinner with relatives and then went to a club.

Murphy would not provide details of the arrest.

Officials at the Smyrna City Jail say Brown posted bond and was released.

Brown's agent did not immediately return messages seeking comment.

A team spokesman had no comment.
