Tennessee Titans player Barden arrested on DUI charge

Tennessee Titans tight end Brandon Barden was arrested on DUI charges Saturday in Lincoln County.

Barden, a 23-year-old Lincolnton native, was arrested after a single-car accident on Georgia Highway 220 around 4:30 a.m.

Barden was traveling east when he lost control of a 2008 GMC Sierra and hit a ditch drain, flipping the vehicle one and a half times, according to the accident report. The officer reported he could smell a strong odor of alcohol and asked if we would do field sobriety testing, which Barden refused, according to the report.

Barden also refused state chemical testing both roadside and at the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office. He was charged with DUI and failure to maintain lane, and was booked into the Lincoln County jail. He has since been released on bond.

Barden, along with two passengers, refused medical treatment.
