A potential college football starting quarterback was arrested hours after his team's spring game this weekend. The charges are serious.

Steven Duncan, a redshirt sophomore quarterback at Western Kentucky, was arrested early Sunday morning on a DUI charge, according to a report by the WKU Herald. Duncan was arrested and processed through the Warren County Regional Jail at 2:43 a.m.

The quarterback was reportedly charged with "operating a motor vehicle under the influence, failure to produce insurance card and failure to illuminate his headlights."

Western Kentucky released the following statement:

"We are aware of the situation and currently gathering more information. We take this matter very seriously as a football program."

Duncan played in Western Kentucky's spring game on Saturday. He split reps with redshirt senior Drew Eckels.

The quarterback completed 2 passes during the 2017 season. The 6-foot-5 quarterback is a South Carolina native.

Western Kentucky is set to open its 2018 season on Aug. 31 against Wisconsin.
