The WKU football program held its annual spring game this weekend, but hours after it ended one of the team’s players found himself in trouble. According to a report from the WKU Herald, redshirt sophomore quarterback Steven Duncan was arrested on a DUI charge.
The report says Duncan was charged with “operating a motor vehicle under the influence, failure to produce insurance card and failure to illuminate his headlights. ”
Duncan was booked at Warren County Regional Jail at 2:43 a.m. local time on Sunday morning.
The school has issued a brief statement on the matter.
“We are aware of the situation and currently gathering more information,” the Hilltoppers’ statement read. “We take this matter very seriously as a football program.”
Duncan was competing with redshirt senior Drew Eckels for the Western Kentucky starting job. His poor decision following the spring game could certainly impact his ability to claim the No. 1 job.
Western Kentucky opens up its 2018 campaign on the road on Aug. 31 against the Wisconsin Badgers.
