Kevin Olsen's season just keeps getting worse. The Miami Hurricanes quarterback was suspended for the first two games of the season, reportedly for a failed drug test, and now he faces more trouble after a DUI arrest early Monday morning.

Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald has the details:

"[Olsen] stepped out of the driver's side of the vehicle and approached me asking what the issue was," the police report said. "While explaining to [Olsen] what was occurring, I noticed [Olsen] had blood shot watery eyes, and an odor of alcoholic beverage emitting from his breathe as he spoke in a slurred speech."

Police then asked Olsen to stand up and perform multiple field sobriety tests. According to police, Olsen was unable to maintain his balance.

Olsen had multiple IDs in his possession: two from Maryland, one from North Carolina, one from Florida and one from New Jersey. He also had the ID of fullback Ronald Regula.

Olsen told police his New Jersey and North Carolina IDs were good, "but the Maryland one is a fake." Olsen took a breathalyzer test and had a .04 rating. Olsen declined to provide police with a urine sample when he was booked at around 4 a.m.
