HELENA — St. Louis Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence in Missoula, where he played college football for the University of Montana.

Missoula County jail records indicate Johnson was booked into jail at 3:05 a.m. Friday and released about an hour later after posting a $700 bond. He was scheduled to make an initial appearance in Municipal Court sometime Friday.

Police Detective Travis Welsh said that Johnson was pulled over shortly after 2 a.m. for driving without his headlights. He refused a breath test.

The Rams issued a statement Friday saying the team was aware of the arrest and had no further comment.

An attorney who represented Johnson in a previous Montana case did not immediately return a message left by The Associated Press on Friday.

The 23-year-old Johnson, a native of Stockton, Calif., was picked by the Rams in the third round of the 2012 NFL draft. He recorded 31 tackles and two interceptions as a rookie.
