Former Steelers QB Kordell Stewart arrested near Atlanta

ATLANTA -- Authorities say former NFL quarterback and ESPN analyst Kordell Stewart has been charged with driving with a suspended license.

Fulton County sheriff's spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan said Stewart, 38, was booked into jail Wednesday in the Atlanta suburb of Alpharetta on that and a speeding charge.

She says he was freed on a $3,000 bond about four hours later.

Flanagan says Stewart is set to appear in court July 12. It wasn't immediately known whether he has an attorney.

The Louisiana native played in the NFL for 11 seasons after starring at the University of Colorado. He spent eight seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, from 1995 through 2002, and also played for the Chicago Bears in 2003 and Baltimore Ravens in 2004-05. He was a Pro Bowl selection in 2002.

ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz said the network had just learned about the incident and was looking into it.
