Virginia Football Recruit Taquan Mizzell Was Arrested During His Official Visit After Attempting To Kick A Moving Car

The recruiting scandals continue.

First it was football recruit Stanley Williams lying about his visit to Notre Dame, and now it's Virginia recruit Taquan Mizzell getting arrested during his official campus visit. According to NBC Sports, the recruiting drama continued when Mizzell was arrested Sunday morning for underage possession of alcohol.

Apparently, Mizzell thought it would be a good idea to try and kick a moving car while intoxicated. Unfortunately for him, a police officer didn't think it was such a great idea and arrested Mizzell after determining that he had been drinking.

The No. 1 all-purpose running back in the nation has yet to sign his official Letter of Intent with Virginia, but he's been committed since last August. Hopefully for Mizzell, Virginia will still want him to sign the letter when February 6th rolls around, but if they don't, he will probably wish his visit to Virginia was also a hoax.
