Titans linebacker Moise Fokou faces an October trial date on charges of driving under the influence and operating a vehicle while impaired in connection with an alleged incident earlier this year in Washington D.C., the Washingtonian magazine reported Friday.

According to the Washingtonian, Fokou was cited in January after being pulled over by the United States Park Police.

Fokou, 27, signed with the Titans in March. He is entering his fifth NFL season.

At attorney for Fokou, Mark Schamel, told both the Washingtonian and the Nashville Tennessean that Fokou will be “cleared” of the charges.

“Mr. Fokou is innocent,” Schamel told the Washingtonian.

The Titans told The Tennessean that they were “aware of the report” regarding Fokou.
