A Metro Nashville police officer's report on the incident states Cecil was pulled over for speeding and the officer noticed a strong odor of alcohol when the coach opened his door. The report also says his eyes were red and watery.

Cecil coaches the Titans' defensive backs.

Officer James Cole Jr.'s report says Cecil lost his footing and stumbled slightly when asked to walk a straight line Saturday night.

The report says Cecil refused a blood alcohol test.
