Oregon Football: Darren Carrington Arrested For DUI, Suspended Indefinitely

Oregon football player Darren Carrington is in trouble with the law.

According to a report from The Oregonian, Carrington was arrested on a driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUII) charge in the wee hours of the morning on Saturday after colliding with a McDonald’s drive-through.

Immediately after learning of Carrington’s arrest, Ducks head coach Willie Taggart suspended the wide receiver indefinitely. An Oregon spokesperson said Carrington is barred “from all football team activities after his arrest last night by the Eugene Police Department on a charge of Driving Under the Influence. We are continuing to gather the facts in this matter.”

Carrington was booked into Lane County Jail at 5:28 p.m. ET before being released just over an hour later on $590 bail.

Last season, Carrington recorded 43 passes for 606 yards and five touchdowns as a junior.

Oregon is set to begin its 2017 campaign on Saturday, Sept. 2 against Southern Utah at home on the Pac-12 Network.
