A pair of Miami Hurricanes offensive linemen were arrested overnight on charges of “resisting officer without violence to his person,” according to Peter Ariz of CanesInsight.

The two linemen are former JUCO transfer Jahair Jones and rising sophomore Trevor Darling. Both were held on $1,000 bond after being booked last night and are on longer on the online inmate directory, so they are probably out on said bond.
There have been no further updates on why Jones and Darling were indeed arrested, but this doesn’t look good for them, especially with new coach Marc Richt about to (hopefully) start a new chapter in Miami’s history. The Hurricanes have not won a bowl game since the MPC Computers Bowl in 2006, a problem that a Miami alum in Richt hopes to rectify during his tenure.
Either way, one thing seems certain. Depending on what led to Darling and Jones to be arrested in the first place, don’t be shocked if Richt throws down the hammer from a disciplinary standpoint.
