The Green Bay Packers have released defensive tackle LeTroy Guion, who is facing intoxicated charges from an incident in Hawaii this summer. 

Per ESPN, Guion was already scheduled to sit out the first four games of 2017 with a substance abuse suspension. 

In August the nine-year pro plans to go to trial for the intoxicated driving charge. 

Police say the 30-year-old Florida State product was pulled over in a Porsche Cayenne for drifting between lanes.

A police report says Guion smelled of alcohol and marijuana, stumbled and spoke with slurred speech. Records say he told an officer it was his birthday and he had been drinking Hennessy cognac.

Arrest records show Guion's blood alcohol level was 0.086 percent after his June arrest in Waikiki.

In an unrelated incident, the NFL suspended him without pay for the first four games of the 2017 season for violating a policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

Guion played in 44 regular season-games with 35 starts for Green Bay over the last three seasons and appeared in seven postseason contests with five starts.
