The Tennessee Titans have released a statement regarding the arrest of offensive coordinator Todd Downing.

Downing was arrested for driving under the influence early Friday morning after the Titans' Thursday Night Football win over the Green Bay Packers.

“We are aware of the reports regarding Todd Downing and are in the process of gathering additional information,” the team said in a statement.

Records show that Downing was booked at about 4:30 a.m. local time by the Williamson County Sheriff's Office in Tennessee. He was released a few hours later.

The team's plane landed in Tennessee at 2:11 a.m. Downing was pulled over at 3:49 a.m.

The 42-year-old offensive coordinator was arrested for DUI despite the Titans' organization offering a free ride sharing service for its players and staff. 

The Titans will likely released another statement once they gather this "additional information."
