After a brief respite, presumably in observance of National Signing Day, news of yet another player arrest has surfaced.
According to the Raleigh News & Observer, North Carolina running back A.J. Blue was arrested Sunday morning on charges that included driving while impaired, driving with an open container of alcohol, and failing to maintain lane control.
Blue, who was arrested at 2:31 a.m. local time Sunday, had a BAC of .12. The sophomore informed the coaching staff of his arrest earlier this week.
In 2009, Blue played in six games before suffering a significant knee injury. He did not play in 2010.
So, for those keeping score at home, Blue is the 13th individual player whose arrest became public knowledge since the calendar flipped from 2010 to 2011, and the eighth in the past seven days.
