Dolphins DT Traylor facing DUI charge

PRYOR, Okla. (May 16, 2006) -- Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Keith Traylor is free on bond after being charged with driving under the influence and illegal possession of a prescription drug, according to court documents.

Traylor was arrested on misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence of alcohol and illegal possession of the prescription antidepressant Xanax, said Rebecca Young, a spokeswoman for Mayes County District Attorney Gene Haynes.

The 337-pound Traylor was also charged with felony injury to a public building for tearing a smoke detector off a wall while he was in jail after his arrest Saturday, Young said.

He was charged and released on $5,000 bond, records show.

Traylor is due back in court July 20, Young said.

The 36-year-old has spent 15 years in the NFL. Last season was his first with Miami. He's also played with Denver, Kansas City, Chicago and New England, winning two Super Bowls with the Broncos and one with the Patriots.
