Country Singer Morrow Charged With DWI

Country singer Cory Morrow (search) was charged with drug possession and driving while intoxicated after police said they found cocaine in a car he was driving.

Morrow, an Austin resident and favorite with the Texas college crowd, was stopped early Saturday morning after he didn't signal a turn, according to a police affidavit.

The officer reported that Morrow's breath smelled of alcohol and his eyes were bloodshot. Morrow was arrested after failing a field sobriety test, and a plastic bag in the car contained one-third of a gram of cocaine, the affidavit said.

Morrow, 32, was charged with possession of a controlled substance, a felony with a maximum penalty of two years in state jail. He also was charged with driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor that carries a jail term of up to 180 days.

He was released from jail on $4,000 bail.

Tour manager Dave Lytle didn't immediately return a message left Thursday by The Associated Press.

Morrow, a Houston native, has released six albums, including "Songs We Wish We'd Written" (search), a collaboration with friend Pat Green.
