Former Saskatchewan Roughriders quarterback Colt Brennan has been arrested just before midnight of Wednesday for driving under the influence of alcohol and promotion of a dangerous drug.
According to reports from the Honolulu police, shortly before midnight on Wednesday, HPD officers arrested 28-year-old Colt Brennan for third degree promoting dangerous drugs and operating a vehicle under the influence of an intoxicant. He was arrested following a traffic stop near the intersection of Kailua Road and Uluoa Street and was subsequently booked at the Kailua Police Station. Michael Green, the attorney of Colt Brennan declined to disclose what kind of drug the CFL star had on him, but Green said that they were not prescription pills.
Colt Brennan was reportedly released around 12:00 p.m. He left the Alapai police station with his attorney, Michael Green.
Reports say that the football star was heading home to Kailua when he was pulled over by the police due to suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.
Back in November 19, 2010, Brennan was involved in a traffic accident on Kailua- Kona, Hawaii Island. The football star suffered from a head trauma and several broken bones. According to the police, Colt Brennan was a passenger in a Toyota four-runner driven by his girlfriend, Shakti Stream.
The couple’s SUV crossed the centerline on Queen Kaahumanu Highway and crashed head-on into an oncoming car driven by Dr. Theresa Wang of Waikoloa. Dr. Wang was airlifted to the intensive care unit at the Queen’s Medical Center. She had multiple operations, before returning back to her home on Hawaii Island.
Meanwhile, Colt Brennan and Shakti Stream were brought to the hospital to have their serious injuries treated. Green says Colt hasn’t fully recovered from his accident in Kona, adding that Brennan is still dealing with emotional and physical injuries.
Last month, Brennan was released from the Canadian football league team, the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Before that, he was drafted in 2008 to play with the National Football League team, Washington Redskins. He was then released two years later. In 2005, Brennan joined the UH Warriors football team and immediately became the starting quarterback job.
