Cops: Jevon Kearse Freakishly Drunk

6/22/2008 2:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jevon KearseFeared by quarterbacks everywhere -- not feared by college popo.

NFL superstar defensive end Jevon "The Freak" Kearse was arrested and charged with a DUI near the Vanderbilt University campus in Nashville, Tenn. early this morning.

We're told Vandy police pulled over Jevon's Escalade at 4:42 AM CT after it was spotted "swerving at a high rate of speed." After Jevon failed field sobriety tests, he refused to take a breathalyzer.

Cops immediately booked the six-foot-four, 265 lb. Tennessee Titans star into the Criminal Justice Center in downtown Nashville.

He was released on $1,000 bond.

The Titans have yet to return our call.

Over paid athletes that have no self control. To think we don't pay our teachers near enough to educate our children.

i'm glad they caught him. the LAST thing a college campus wants is one of their students getting hit by a drunk driver.

Marshawn Lynch of the Buffalo Bills was involved in a hit and run a few weeks ago. He originally stated that he'd cooperate with police but never showed up. Weeks go by and the DA was stalling stating more evidence needed to be gathered and Marshawn was refusing to keep his word. Now he's lawyered up working for a reduced sentence and just paying a fine. Alcohol was involved but he will still get away with it. I hope that the woman he hit from Canada sues him for all he has.

It's athletes like these that think they are way above the law and can get away with anything.
