LEESBURG, Va. -- Washington Redskins defensive lineman Joe Joseph has been arrested on charges of driving under the influence.
Vincent DiBenedetto, a spokesman with the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, says Joe Louis Joseph Jr. was booked around 3 a.m. Monday.
Joseph was arrested after the Redskins returned Sunday from Jacksonville following a 20-17 overtime win. It was Joseph's first game as an active member of an NFL roster.
He was later released on his own recognizance. Authorities did not know if he had an attorney.
