Following Saturday evening’s win over Mercer at Jordan-Hare Stadium, Auburn football player Sean White, the team’s backup quarterback, was arrested for public intoxication.
According to a report from al.com, the 21-year-old White was arrested early Sunday morning at 2:45 a.m. by Auburn Police.
White was held on $500 bond.
White, who started ten games during the 2016 season, was returning to the lineup after missing the first two games of 2017 due to suspension. White was serving as the backup to Baylor transfer Jarrett Stidham.
Auburn defeated Mercer, 24-10.
White is due to appear in court on Nov. 30. The penalty for public intoxication in Alabama is usually a fine and court costs.
Last season, White threw for 1,679 yards, nine touchdowns and three interceptions. If he does not see the field this season, there is a possibility he could look to finish his career as a graduate transfer next season, but there is no official word on what his plans may be.
For now, White will have to deal with this off-field incident while the Tigers prepare for next weekend’s outing against Missouri.
