Bernie Kosar pre-trial for OVI, speeding charges postponed
Feb/11/14 08:20 AM Filed in: Bernie Kosar
BEDFORD, Ohio – A pre-trial hearing scheduled Monday morning for former Cleveland Browns star Bernie Kosar has been postponed to April, a Bedford Municipal Court official said.
Kosar is charged with speeding and operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. The retired quarterback’s OVI and speeding charges stem from a September traffic stop in Solon during which he refused to take a breath alcohol test.
Police who pulled over the ex-NFL star just after 2:30 a.m. on U.S. Route 422 reported smelling alcohol coming from Kosar’s vehicle.
Kosar pleaded not guilty to both charges.
Bedford Clerk of Court Thomas Day said Kosar's lawyer arrived in court Monday morning and requested the reschedule because Kosar is out of town.
Kosar played quarterback for the browns from 1985 to 1993.
