NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A preliminary hearing on a drunken-driving charge for Tennessee defensive end Jevon Kearse has been continued until Jan. 6.

The hearing had been scheduled for Tuesday, but Kearse's attorney Roger May said neither he nor the district attorney general's office had seen video of the June 22 arrest. Kearse was arrested by Vanderbilt University police and charged with driving under the influence and refusing a breath test.

The district attorney general's office has a procedure for requesting videos from Metro Nashville police but not with Vanderbilt's police.

Kearse was stopped around 4:42 a.m. that day by police who noticed a sport-utility vehicle weave across a road.
