Colt Brennan released after his arrest for drugs, DUI

By Gregg K. Kakesako & Ferd Lewis

Star-Advertiser staff


Former University of Hawaii quarterback Colt Brennan was released from jail this afternoon after his arrest late Wednesday night in Kailua on suspicion of drunken driving and promotion of a dangerous drug.

Brennan, wearing a t-shirt and basketball shorts, was released without charges, pending further investigation, at about 12:15 p.m. He did not have to post bail, police said.

Officers arrested Brennan, 28, on Kailua Road near the Uluoa Street intersection just before midnight on suspicion of driving under the influence and third-degree promotion of a dangerous drug, police said. The drug charge is a Class C felony punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. 

His attorney Michael Green and a woman, a family friend, greeted Brennan outside the receiving area for the cellblock. Brennan kissed the woman on the cheek and thanked her for coming. A reporter started to ask him a question but Green advised Brennan not to answer. Brennan and Green left in Green’s beige four-door Bentley, and the friend left in a car driven by another woman.

Earlier this morning, Green met with his client in the cellblock.

“This is so sad,” Green said after the meeting. “This is a guy who gave everything. ... The best words to describe him now is that he is deeply sad.”

Green said a police officer stopped Brennan for going 10 miles over the speed limit while Brennan was on his way home to Kailua.

Green said Brennan is still suffering from the brain injury in the Hawaii island accident in 2010.

“There are psychological carryovers,” Green said.

Brennan’s arrest drew a small crowd at a nearby 7-Eleven store and Aloha gas station, where he failed a field sobriety test, a source said.

A small amount of drugs was found in the car. It’s not clear yet what kind of drugs are involved.

Green said he has his “suspicions” on what kind of drugs were found, but wouldn’t speculate.

He said the drugs were not pills.

Green also said Brennan told him he thought he passed the field sobriety test.

Witnesses said Brennan was wearing a T-shirt and shorts when he was pulled over while driving a red Chevy compact car.

He was described as being alone in the vehicle.

Brennan gave police an Irvine, Calif., address as his home.

Reached in California this morning, the quarterback’s father, Terry Brennan, said he had been told of an arrest by friends.

He said his son recently moved back to Hawaii to live.

In 2004 while attending the University of Colorado, a night of drinking led to Colt Brennan being found guilty of second-degree burglary and first-degree criminal trespass. He was dismissed from the Colorado team.

He was sentenced to seven days in jail and completed 60 hours of community service, four years probation and wrote a letter of apology that was published in three Colorado newspapers.

Brennan was released last month by the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League.

Brennan was a Heisman Trophy finalist who led the Warriors to an unbeaten 2007 regular season (12-0) and a berth in the Sugar Bowl, a Bowl Championship Series game, which UH lost to Georgia.

He became a sixth round draft pick of the Washington Redskins in 2008. Despite some promising showings in preseason games, he was released by the Redskins in 2010 without having played in a regular season game and also was released by the Oakland Raiders.

In November 2010, Brennan was seriously injured in a head-on collision on the Big Island. He was a passenger in an SUV driven by girlfriend Shakti Stream of Kona on Queen Kaahumanu Highway when the vehicle crossed the center line and collided head-on with a Saab sedan. Brennan suffered a head injury, broken ribs and a broken left collarbone.

The driver of the Saab, Dr. Theresa Wang of the Big Island, suffered traumatic injuries, including to her brain and spine, and 22 broken bones.

After recovering from his injuries, Brennan joined the Hartford Colonials of the United Football League in 2011. But the team folded last summer before playing a game.

The truth has never really come out to the public how he and his girlfriend in their vehicle crossed the center line of oncoming traffic and DESTR OYED a Hawaii woman/mother/physicians' life forever. All that was alleged by Colt and his gilfriend was steering problems but was any evidence by investigators confirming of some steering failure? (if you search online, the victim Dr Teresa Wang states she was informed that Colt and his girlfriend were arguing at the time of the accident) So can you understand after this additional arrest for DUI/drugs, many people have nothing but very negative things to say about Brennan? Brennan has already passed major crossroads and is on the road that terminates either to the big house or to the river Styx.

Choices and Consequences! With that being said why does the HPD choose to convict these players when sometimes they let people off with warnings. I've heard of many a stories where people get off with warnings. I realize the law was broken but they should realize what this will do to the reputation of the UH athletic department in general. I'm sure in other states college players are treated differently and when laws are broken it gets swept under the carpet. The bottom line is when the UH football team is doing good than it raises the economy because everyone feels good about themselves. We need UH to step up there game and HPD to slow there roll. Thats my opinion.

Hawai`i gave Colt much aloha - and vice versa. It's too bad he is experiencing some troubling times. Talk about fair weather fans. The sanctimonious name callers who are gleeful in kicking a guy when he's down would likely turn their backs on a troubled family member.

Colt there are many many fans that still love you! Hope you get well and bounce back! Akua bless

Ah, the infamous "field sobriety test". Try doing it dead sober. Otherwise, ask the cop to demonstrate through completion how he wants each and every move performed. If he expects you to hold out your foot in front of you for x-amount of seconds, have him do it for that length of time himself. I mean, if the cop can't do it - why should you have to be able to do it? Again, the infamous "field sobriety test" is difficult to perform dead sober.

He didn't have to post bail? Are you serious? That's just ridiculous! He needs to learn a lesson just like everyone else who has been cited for having a DUI, not get off easy just because he played football for the University of Hawaii. You would think that someone who almost had their life taken from them a few years ago, would make better decisions. Don't drink and drive. Have a designated driver or call a cab! He's so foolish, but at the same time this guy needs a lot of prayer. Lessons need to be learned.

This is a tough one. I'm thankful for the moment in time when Colt brought more smiles to the state. He was "Da Man". Sadly, its only good for that PERIOD in time, and it doesn't give one the pass for the rest of his life in Hawaii. There is no doubt that everyone appreciates what he gave to the state, but a DUI will dull that shine a bit...especially if found guilty. He got caught, and now comes the fall out...as harsh as it may seem to some of you. I don't find anything wrong with people's critical reactions. Better he read all of this and snap into reality, then drink/drive and hurt someone.

Colt gave us thrills on the football field and we loved it! He came back for his senior year and we loved it! We put him on a pedestal and forgot he was as human as the next guy. He has made mistakes before and rose above them and gave himself a chance. Driving under the influence is a big mistake and a tragedy in the making. I hope Colt learns from it. With all the ups and downs in his young life he still has a chance to become a success. Mahalo Colt for what you gave Hawaii! I hope we can show you the support and Aloha you obviously need and you realize your potential and not necessarily on the football field.

DUI is dangerous, stupid and just wrong! That said, I'm still surprised at the amount of haters that crawled out from under their rocks. He's not guilty until PROVEN guilty folks. My nephew got arrested for DUI, guess what? After about two years of court appearances and delays, he was acquitted. Turns out he was taking prescription medication and doesn't even drink. Last time I looked this was still America and Hawaii is still one of the 50 states. Are we still the Aloha State? Maybe we've just progressed/regressed past the Aloha. Shame.

Because the drug arrest is a felony and the DUI a misdemeanor. He would have to be charged for both at the same time or lose the felony. The drug charge requires an analysis that would take more than the 48 hours from the time of arrest to perform. Rush analysis is reserved for career criminals, extreme flight risks, or other extraordinary circumstance. Better description would be released pending further investigation.
