ATHENS, Ga. -- Former Georgia tight end Orson Charles is out of jail following an arrest on a drunken driving charge.

Athens-Clarke County police spokeswoman Hilda Sorrow says Charles was arrested at 3 a.m. Friday after he was stopped while driving in Athens. Sorrow says Charles failed parts of a field sobriety test and his blood alcohol level was .095, above the state's legal limit of .08.

Athens-Clarke County jail records show he was released on $1,750 bond.

Charles had 45 catches as a junior last season. He left Georgia to enter the NFL draft and has been projected to go high as the second round.

It was not immediately clear whether Charles had an attorney. He did not have a phone listing.

A passenger in the car with Charles was not identified.
