Earlier Saturday, news broke that a former top college football recruit and son of a head coach of a major football program ran into some trouble with the law this weekend.
According to a report from the USA Today, University of Texas El Paso quarterback Kai Locksley was arrested on Friday.
The report details police arrested Locksley on charges of driving while intoxicated, possession of marijuana under two ounces, terroristic threat and unlawful carrying of a weapon.
A few hours after the initial story came out, the team announced its punishment for the starting quarterback.
Head coach Dana Dimel released a statement announcing Locksley has been suspended from the team as a result of his arrest.
“We are aware of the charges against Kai Locksley. While the severity of these charges is concerning, it would not be appropriate to determine a course of action until we have all the facts. In the meantime, he has been suspended from the UTEP football team,” Dimel announced.
