Jon Sandusky, the son of former Penn State assistant Jerry Sandusky and the director of player personnel for the Cleveland Browns, was arrested early Tuesday morning on suspicion of drunken driving in North Dakota.
Sandusky, 36, was pulled over around 1:50 a.m. Tuesday for making an illegal turn, Fargo Police Lt. Joel Vettel said (via the Forum of Fargo-Moorhead). Sandusky was booked and released from Cass County Jail, Vettel said.
“We’re aware of the situation and currently working to gather facts,” Browns spokesman Zak Gilbert told the Associated Press.
Sandusky is in his second season with the Browns after spending nine years with the Philadelphia Eagles. He may have been on a scouting trip; the Forum reports that a man with a Cleveland Browns coat was seen leaving a North Dakota State football team room Tuesday afternoon
Sandusky’s father, Penn State’s former defensive coordinator, is serving a 30-to-60 year sentence in a Pennsylvania prison after being convicted last year of sexually abusing 10 boys.
