The son of Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino is facing DUI charges.

A Broward Sheriff's Office deputy arrested 30-year-old Michael Marino on August 10.

The deputy pulled over Marino after he ran a stop sign and turned in front of two vehicles causing them to brake suddenly and hard to avoid a crash, according to a booking report.

The deputy noted Marino had bloodshot, glassy eyes and an odor of alcoholic beverage. The deputy said his speech appeared slurred and he was unsteady on his feet. 

The deputy said Marino initially refused to take a breath test but later agreed.

A police report notes that Marino's breath results registered .208 and .210. 

For drivers over 21, the legal limit in Florida is .08, according to the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles.

Marino posted $1,500 bond Friday and entered a not guilty plea on Tuesday to driving under the influence and driving under the influence with a blood alcohol level higher than .15, according to the Miami Herald.
