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.

The 25-year-old lineman joined the Redskins' practice squad Dec. 15 and was promoted to the main roster on Saturday. He spent training camp with Tennessee as an undrafted rookie from the University of Miami.

He was later released on his own recognizance. Authorities did not know if he had an attorney. A Redskins spokesman said the team was "gathering all the
facts" before commenting.
