This is not a good start to Kenny Hill's bid to become Texas A&M's next starting quarterback.

According to The Eagle, citing College Station police reports, Hill was arrested early Friday morning for public intoxication. Hill was taken into custody around 3 a.m. when he was found passed out in a planter outside a local restaurant. When police asked Hill who the current president was he responded with "Bush." He has since been released after posting bail.

Public intoxication is a Class C misdemeanor and is punishable by a fine.

Whether or not this will lead to further punishment from the school remains to be seen, as Texas A&M is yet to comment on the arrest. Hill is expected to compete for the starting quarterback job in College Station this season as the Aggies try to replace Johnny Manziel.

Hill appeared in five games for the Aggies last season, completing 73 percent of his passes for 183 yards and a touchdown.
