New Mexico Lobos tight end Michael Walsh was arrested on multiple charges Saturday night, according to a report from Rick Wright of The Albuquerque Journal.
Per what Wright learned from local police, Walsh was found asleep at the wheel of his vehicle after it was seen not moving through several traffic light cycles. After being woken up by officers and the smell of alcohol being prominent, Walsh was ultimately charged with DWI, blocking traffic, having no proof of insurance and also having no vehicle registration. He refused a brethalyzer test, but eventually provided a pair of samples at or above twice the legal limit of .08.
“I want to be consistent with these matters, and we’re still in the process of gathering information,” Lobos coach Bob Davie said earlier this week. “But there will be some penalty. Obviously, it’s a very serious situation.”
Walsh has not yet caught a pass for the Lobos since arriving as a walk-on receiver in 2014, but has done strong work on special teams. Despite that, this is indeed a serious situation and he will have to face some sort of consequences.
