Former University of Texas quarterback Vince Young had his DWI charge reduced to obstructing a highway in a Fort Bend County courtroom on Friday, according to KRIV-TV.

Young, who led the Longhorns to the 2005 national championship and played in the NFL for six seasons, was charged for a DWI after being pulled over in Sienna Plantation back in February. Attorney Paul Doyle told the station that the charge was reduced.

“That’s a big development and it supports what Vince has said all along,” Doyle said. “It is rare that a DA’s office has the guts to do this.”
