Testimony began in the Leonard Little trial on Thursday. Officer Gregory Stork of the Ladue, Missouri Police Department said the Rams linebacker failed three field sobriety tests in the early hours of April 23, 2004 and refused a Breathalyzer test. Stork said Little had trouble keeping his balance after police pulled him over for driving 78 MPH in a 55 MPH zone.

Little is being charged with a felony because the arrest is in violation of his probation. In 1998 Little was drunk when he was involved in a traffic accident in downtown St. Louis, which killed a woman. He pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in 1999 and did three months in jail and served 1,000 hours of community service.

Little’s attorney, Scott Rosenblum, wants the charges dropped because he claims the tests were improperly administered
