Associated Press

LOS ANGELES Sheriff's deputies say former NFL running back Corey Dillon has been arrested for alleged drunken driving.

The 35-year-old Dillon was booked at the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department after being pulled over at about 3:30 a.m. Wednesday. Bail was set at $5,000.

Other details of his arrest weren't immediately available.

A Seattle native, Dillon was with the Cincinnati Bengals from 1997 to 2003 and the New England Patriots from 2004 to 2006. Dillon earned a Super Bowl ring in his first season with the Patriots when they beat the Philadelphia Eagles 24-21 on Feb. 6, 2005.

Dillon retired in 2007.
