KFGO News is reporting that Jon Sandusky, the player personnel director of the Cleveland Browns who happens to be the son of infamous former Penn State coach/convicted child molestor Jerry Sandusky, was arrested in Fargo on Monday night for drunken driving .

Police say Sandusky was arrested Monday night after he made an illegal turn in downtown Fargo. Police made a traffic stop and administered a field sobriety check.

Sandusky was at a North Dakota State football practice earlier in the day, presumably scouting players like cornerback Marcus Williams and offensive lineman Billy Turner. They play for the No. 1-ranked and two-time Football Championship Subdivision champion Bison.

Sandusky is in his second season as the player personnel director for the Browns, according to the team's Web site. He spent the previous nine seasons with the personnel staff of the Philadelphia Eagles.

He played college football at Penn State from 1996-99. He was a safety who was a member of the Big Ten's all-academic team.

Jon Sandusky, 36, is one of six children adopted by Jerry and Dottie Sandusky. 

In 2012, Jerry Sandusky was found guilty on 45 of 48 counts of sexual abuse of young boys over a 15-year period while working at Penn State. He was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison.

One of Jerry Sandusky's sons, Matt, accused his father of sexually molesting him as a child.
