Former Texas defensive tackle T’Vondre Sweat, a top draft prospect at his position, was arrested in Austin on Sunday and charged with driving while intoxicated, as reported by KXAN News. Sweat, who is 22 years old, was taken into custody by Austin police and was booked into Travis County jail at 2:12 p.m. on Sunday. The charge of driving while intoxicated is considered a Class B misdemeanor, and his bond was set at $3,000.

Sweat had an impressive college career, earning Big 12 defensive player of the year honors and winning the Outland Trophy for the best interior lineman in college football last season. In 2023, he recorded a career-high 45 tackles, with 18 solo tackles, eight tackles for loss, two sacks, four pass breakups, one blocked kick, and even caught a two-yard touchdown pass.
