Auburn football recruit arrested and charged with DUI

A prospective Auburn football recruit, who already committed to the team verbally, was arrested on charges of driving under the influence late last month. This is a serious development for the young football player as it could negatively affect his ability to play sports for the team.

According to the Athens-Clarke County jail, the young man was booked at 4:38 a.m., early on a Sunday morning. Authorities released him three hours later after he met a $2,000 bond. His charges are failing to maintain his lane, improper driving after a traffic stop and driving under the influence.

As of the latest reports, the head football coach for Auburn, Gus Malzahn, has yet to release statements regarding the young man's arrest. However, because the man only gave a verbal commitment and had not already signed the contract he was offered between Dec. 20 and 22, his arrest and allegations could make it difficult for him to sign up for a contract without violating the NCAA's regulations.

The only news offered up from the football player can be seen through a statement on his Twitter account that said "only a fool who looks at his mistakes and laughs at it instead of learning from it."

A DUI arrest and allegations can serve to destroy the careers and reputations of anyone -- not just football players. If you have been accused of drunk driving in Georgia, you will want to take your charges seriously and navigate your criminal proceedings to the best of your ability in court to try and get your charges dismissed, achieve a verdict of not guilty or seek a reduction in punishments if a conviction is inevitable.
