Prescott was accused of driving 41 mph in a 25 mph zone, and with first-offense driving under the influence, a misdemeanor. Police said he admitted drinking at least one beer that night.

Police records show that one breathalyzer test was an “invalid sample” and a second was an “insufficient sample.”

The 6-foot-2, 226-pound Prescott helped Mississippi State win a combined 19 games in his junior and senior seasons.

The Cowboys begin training camp this week.
