Compared to the off-field “issue” Auburn’s football program faced — and swiftly dealt with — earlier this offseason, Onterio McCalebb‘s current “issue” is a veritable pinprick.
Still, we’re guessing that head coach Gene Chizik will be/is none too pleased with the development, minor or not.
According to AuburnEagles.com by way of Mr. SEC.com, the running back was arrested on May 14 and charged with driving an unregistered vehicle — no tag or revalidation decal — and failing to produce a valid driver’s license. In other words, McCalebb was driving around Atlanta with expired tags sans driver’s license on his person.
During the Tigers’ title run last season, McCalebb finished third on the team with 810 rushing yards and second with nine rushing touchdowns.
