HOUSTON - A judge sentenced Houston Texans safety Marcus Coleman to three days in jail and a $2,000 fine Tuesday, a day after a jury convicted him of a misdemeanor drunken driving charge.
 

Coleman, 30, faced up to six months in jail. He crashed his new Mercedes-Benz in May after leaving a bar. He was alone in the vehicle and wasn't hurt in the minor one-car wreck.

A police video played during his three-day trial last week showed him stumble when asked to walk a straight line and lose his balance when asked to stand on one leg.

Coleman, a nine-year NFL veteran, testified he wasn't intoxicated and blamed the crash on being distracted while adjusting his car radio. But he refused to take a breath test after his arrest, a move that resulted in the suspension of his driver's license for 180 days.

Houston's training camp opens Friday.
