LINCOLN COUNTY, Ga. (WRDW) -- A tight end for the Tennessee Titans was arrested for a DUI on refusal on Saturday in Lincoln County.

Lincoln County Sheriff Bruce Beggs says 23-year-old Brandon Barden was arrested after a single-car accident on Highway 220.

Officers say Barden left the right side of the roadway sometime before 4:30 a.m., losing control and hitting a ditch drain before the car flipped one and a half times, landing on its side.

According to the incident report, the reporting officer said he could "smell a strong odor of alcohol." Barden refused field sobriety testing, roadside Alco-Sensor testing and state chemical testing.

The two passengers inside the car refused medical treatment at the scene.

Barden, a Lincoln County native, was charged with DUI on refusal and was booked into the jail. He has since been released on bond.
