Joe Montana's Son -- College QB Busted for DUI

Joe Montana's son Nathaniel Joseph Montana -- currently a quarterback at the University of Montana -- was arrested on suspicion of DUI early this morning ... in Missoula, Montana.

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.

and we should care why? a 19 year old kid who was a walk on at ND, then transferred to a Div 2 football school got a DUI and isnt even the STARTER! Then again TMZ also calls Kris Humphries a star when he was a career backup on the worst team in the league, altough this year he did play decently. And mentions he paid 4mm for a ring when he made 3.2MM last year, so after taxes he makes 1.6MM. Yes, that makes sense TMZ.

Zero-tolerance on drinking and driving. Seriously, take the stupid people off the road, before they kill someone.

Man, that school is fast becoming the small school U of Miami. Go back and read about some of the self-entitled idiots that have been there recently and get a good laugh.

He's been a troublemaker for years. He actually started college at Pasadena City College as backup QB, where he had a few run-ins with LAPD (but was let off). He then transferred to Notre Dame (couldn't get in right out of high school - was deferred because of academics). He walked onto the football team and was backup to the backup QB. He then gets arrested last summer on campus for drinking - misdeamonor charges. He then transfers to U of Montana and gets popped for a DUI before he evens plays on the field (where he may still be a backup QB). I predict he doesn't amount to much...

First off, Hannah Montana really? If that is suppose to be funny it really isn't. A lot of people drive and a lot of people are doing so after they have a drink or more. It is truly pathetic that a bunch of strangers can sit here and pass judgement onto someone they don't even know AND when you don't even know all the facts. Walk a mile in someone else s shoes before you pass criticism onto people you don't know and only know because of things you read online. Pathetic.

I wouldn't want to walk a mile in someone's shoes that drives drunk. No thanks! Some people are smarter than that and know better than to risk their lives or that of others. I can't believe people want to pass of DUI's as if they are nothing. For this giving them a free pass, I hope it's you or your family they hit on the road NOT mine!
Everyone should have zero tolerance for this kind of crap. They should automatically lose their licence for a year and pay huge fines!!! Sick of idiots drunks on the roads!

All kids need to be given a second chance....I think we would all fail if judged by some of our behavior as kids. I've been sober for 32 years and do know this kid deserves a second chance...
