WASHINGTON HEIGHTS, Manhattan (WABC) -- Former New York Jets player Muhammad Wilkerson, 29, was arrested for driving while intoxicated in Washington Heights early Saturday, officials say.

Police say Wilkerson went through a stop sign near 168th Street and Riverside Drive around just after 3:30 a.m. while driving a 2019 Rolls Royce.

When police pulled him over, they noticed his blood shot eyes and an odor of alcohol.

Wilkerson spent seven years as a defensive lineman with the Jets before signing with the Green Bay Packers last year. He is currently a free agent.

Wilkerson was charged and later released.
