College football player charged with DUI

College football fans in California may be interested to learn that a football player from Kansas State University was charged with driving under the influence. The 20-year-old Wildcats defensive back was taken into custody on Oct. 4 after he struck a light pole while driving in Manhattan, Kansas.

The alleged drunk driving accident that led to the sophomore football player's charge did not result in any injuries. According to a statement from the Riley County Police Department, the accused man was in possession of multiple pills at the time of the incident. Police identified the pills as depressants and charged the man with possession of a depressant in addition to DUI.

After he was booked on the two charges, the accused man was given the option of release on $3,500 bond. It is unclear whether the man has been released from custody or whether an attorney is representing him. On Oct. 5, the accused man's football coach stated that he was aware of the incident and would be handling the matter. The accused man is originally from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.

People who are stopped for suspected drunk driving are usually asked to complete some type of sobriety test. Some of these tests are more reliable than others, but they all have issues that can sometimes lead to false results. A criminal defense attorney may be able to help a DUI defendant to dispute the results of a sobriety test by arguing that the test was not administered properly or the results are too close to a known margin of error.
