COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The State Highway Patrol says a former Ohio State University football star was cited for impaired driving after another motorist reported a vehicle swerving erratically and nearly hitting others on Interstate 71.

Maurice Clarett was arrested Sunday afternoon in Morrow County on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

A patrol spokesman says Clarett was alone and refused a full sobriety test, resulting in his driver’s license being suspended for a year.

The 32-year-old from Canal Winchester is scheduled for a court appearance Thursday. He didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment through the website where he advertises himself as an inspirational speaker after a stint in prison for robbery and other charges.

Before that, he helped the Buckeyes win the 2002 national championship.
