Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, 21-year-old Nathaniel was arrested shortly before 4 AM -- and released soon after on $685 bond.

We're told Nathaniel was originally stopped for speeding -- with several other people in the vehicle -- and after cops pulled him over, he flunked a field sobriety test.

Nathaniel -- who transferred from Notre Dame in February to vie for the starting QB position at U. Montana -- is due back in court this afternoon.

In this day and age to have people in the car while driving under the influence...unforgiveable. Do what they do in Europe: take his license away.

yah know now a days when it comes to DUI/DWI its not so taboo anymore...it doesnt have the woooaaahhh factor it once had.by now the % of americans who are not famous are way high for DUI so not like alot of us can throw stones n all.i have had one myself and i did do 18 days in the county country club for failure to attend in patient rehab n all.i fortunately learned from my mistake and now ride a bicycle or i walk..cold weather i now make sure i save enough for cab fare if i am out.i dont condone it but cannot deny it happens.

DUMB! Joe better straighten him out. Even if he is just an average QB, the pros are going to sign him for at least a few years just because of his father...that is if he doesn't screw it all up while in college. Even a minimum salary NFL player makes at least $325,000 per season!!!

WellI have mix feelings about TMZ posting his picture. This kid should be ashamed of himself because he could of killed somebody! However would TMZ have posted this photo if he wasn't a celebirty off spring? Most people hwho do get a DUI do have a drinking problem.

Q    

This guy panicked his first series at ND and threw an interception in a situation where he didnt have to throw at all...one would think with the time out Coach Kelly took before the toss he would have reminded young Montana, no need to throw the ball if you have nothing, or being raised by a guy rated the 4th best player ever to play in the NFL, and an ex QB at that---that the son would have known better...he did, but panicked anyway...he has no business being the starter at any major College or even a future backup to a backup in the NFL...a drunk who panics is always bad, and usually ends up killing an innocent person or family behind the wheel.

Joe, you got a problem drinker here---transferring the problem like you did from ND to Montana wont fix it.
