The Boz Blows… .08+

First Topenga, now the Boz. I just dont know what to think. 

Former NFL player-turned-actor Brian Bosworth has been arrested in Hollywood on suspicion of driving under the influence. Los Angeles police Sgt. Alex Ortiz says Bosworth was arrested early Friday. The 43-year-old Bosworth was being held on $5,000 bail.
Bosworth played for Oklahoma before retiring three years into a 10-year contract with the Seattle Seahawks because of a shoulder injury. A phone message left with Bosworth's agent early Friday wasn't immediately returned. Bosworth's screen credits include "Stone Cold," "Three Kings" and "The Longest Yard."
