NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Nashville Predators forward David Legwand has been charged with driving under the influence, police say.

Legwand was pulled over on Feb. 15 after a police officer clocked him going 82 kilometres per hour in a 56-km/h zone. He was driving his 2006 Range Rover.

Police reports said the officer noticed Legwand's eyes were bloodshot, his speech slurred and he smelled of alcohol. Legwand said he had attended a concert.

He refused a breath test and was charged with driving under the influence. He is scheduled to appear in court March 12.

Legwand signed a US$27-million, six-year deal in December and ranks fourth on the Predators in scoring. He has played in all five games since his arrest.
