SOLON, Ohio--More details were revealed Monday surrounding the arrest of former Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar.

Solon police said Kosar was stopped for speeding at 2:42 a.m. Sunday while driving east on Route 422.

Officers detected a strong odor of alcohol and Kosar was arrested and charged with OVI and speeding.

According to police, Kosar was clocked going 74 mph in a 50 mph zone.

They also said when the officer asked Kosar for his driver's license, he instead handed the officer two credit cards.

Kosar's attorney entered a not guilty plea on his behalf in Bedford Municipal Court, Monday morning.

A pretrial is set for December 9.

Kosar declined to make a comment to FOX 8 on the drunk driving arrest.

    It’s amazing that people that can obviously afford a taxi or limo or other means of getting home still drive after drinking. It doesn’t make sense. You just cannot drink and drive….it’s all about using your common sense. Do I drive and risk hurting or killing someone and myself; or call someone to take me home. Simple, yet it happens over and over. I am so ashamed of you Bernie. You are not being a good example that you certainly should be.

    If they find that he was really inebriated, ok. But I’ve driven that same route many a time because I used to live out that way and, even during the day, people do 70 mph on 422. So, I don’t feel that was a crime.
