IRVING, Texas (AP) - Texas linebacker Sergio Kindle says he learned a lesson last month after crashing his car into an Austin apartment building while he was text messaging.

Appearing Wednesday at Big 12 media days, Kindle said Texas coach Mack Brown took disciplinary action against him but declined to provide specifics. He said the punishment didn't involve suspensions from practices or games.

The senior from Dallas says the wreck was a wake-up call, and that he had spent the past few weeks rebuilding his credibility with teammates.

A police spokeswoman says no charges have been filed against Kindle, who says he wasn't drinking at the time of the crash. He wound up with a concussion.

Kindle had 53 tackles and 10 sacks last year.
