Former Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Tyler Palko was arrested early Sunday morning on accusations of driving under the influence.

Palko, 37, of Overland Park, was booked into the Johnson County Jail at about 12:15 a.m. Sunday on accusations of driving under the influence, according to the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, per the Kansas City Star.

Palko was released at about 5:05 a.m. after posting $1,300 cash bond.

His first court appearance is set for Monday, and as of Sunday, Palko had not been formally charged. His court docket does not yet list an attorney.

Palko played for the Chiefs in the 2010 and 2011 regular seasons and took over for former Chiefs starting QB Matt Cassel in 2011 after he was injured.

As a starter, he went 1-3 and led the Chiefs to only two touchdowns as the team slid out of playoff contention in 2011. He was released by the Chiefs at the end of the season, Fox 4 reports.
