Ryan Mallett was arrested on Tuesday for driving while intoxicated, according to TMZ Sports.

The former Patriots backup quarterback reportedly was involved in a two-car collision in Springdale, Arkansas around 6:30 p.m. When cops tested Mallett's blood alcohol level, he registered a .08, which is the legal limit.

The 31-year-old also was charged with careless prohibited driving for crossing over the center line.

Mallett, a former QB with the Pats, Texans, and Ravens, recently accepted an invitation to the XFL Draft being held in October.
