The dashcam video has been released showing former NFL player now turned coach Robert Mathis in the moments before being arrested for suspected DUI.


Mathis, who played 13 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts including their 2007 Super Bowl Championship, was arrested last week by Carmel, Indiana police after they say an officer saw Mathis drive the wrong way on a city road, then almost hit a street sign.

The video, posted by WRTV, shows Mathis taking a field sobriety test. In it, Mathis can be seen trying to walk a straight line and also trying to keep balance on a one-leg stand. He had trouble doing both.

The Indianapolis Star reports Mathis told officers he had two shots of Crown Royal and had also taken a sleeping aid a few hours earlier. A breathalyzer showed Mathis had a blood-alcohol content of .052, which is below the Indiana legal limit of.08. Carmel police said Indiana law allows an officer to arrest someone who is not over the legal limit if they suspect that person is too impaired to drive.

Mathis had just been hired by the Colts as a pass rush consultant.
