New Orleans Saints wide receiver Joe Morgan was arrested over the weekend on a charge of driving while intoxicated.

Louisiana State Police Trooper Melissa Matey said Wednesday that the 25-year-old player was arrested Saturday in Jefferson Parish on a charge of DWI and driving with no license. He was released after posting a $1,150 bond.

A trooper responding to a report of a disabled vehicle on the Earhart Expressway found Morgan asleep, behind the wheel of his car. The trooper's report says Morgan, once he got out of the car, was swaying on his feet, smelled of alcohol and had unsteady balance and bloodshot eyes.

An arrest report, according to the Times-Picayune, says Morgan's blood alcohol content registered at 0.218 percent, more than twice the 0.08 percent legal limit.
