TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Police say Tampa Bay Lightning left wing Ryan Malone has been charged with DUI and possession of cocaine.

Tampa Police Lt. Paul Lusczynski says Malone's breath smelled like alcohol when he was stopped by an officer early Saturday. According to a police report, the officer also found 1.3 grams of cocaine in one of Malone's pockets.

Lusczynski says Malone refused to take field sobriety tests, but a breath test given at the jail recorded blood alcohol levels of 0.112 and 0.116 percent. Florida law considers a driver impaired at 0.08.

Malone was released from the Hillsborough County jail on $2,500 bond. Jail records didn't show whether he had an attorney.

Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman says Malone won't travel with the team for a game Sunday against the Washington Capitals.
