For the fifth day in a row, a college football player has made news for the wrong reason, with Iowa State the latest school forced to deal with an off-field issue.
According to the Des Moines Register, linebacker Matt Tau’fo’ou was arrested very early Saturday morning and charged with a drunk driving offense. The junior was pulled over by campus police because his “driving was consistent with that of someone who was possibly driving while intoxicated” ISU deputy police chief Rob Bowers told the paper.
As a result of the arrest, Tau’fo’ou has been suspended indefinitely.
This is Tau’fo’ou’s second arrest since joining the team in 2009; in September of that year, he was charged with misdemeanor theft after lifting a wireless computer adapter from a campus bookstore.
In 2010, Tau’fo’ou started two of the five games he played in.
