Former NFL player-turned-actor Brian Bosworth has been arrested in Hollywood on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Los Angeles police Sgt. Alex Ortiz says Bosworth was arrested early Friday. The 43-year-old Bosworth was being held on $5,000 bail.

Bosworth played for Oklahoma before retiring three years into a 10-year contract with the Seattle Seahawks because of a shoulder injury.

A phone message left with Bosworth's agent early Friday wasn't immediately returned.

Bosworth's screen credits include "Stone Cold," "Three Kings" and "The Longest Yard."
