It’s not officially the offseason until athletes start getting arrested every few days. And, wouldn’t you know it, the “days without an arrest” ticker was right at three.

According to the Stanford Daily, and citing the Stanford University Department of Public Safety (SUDPS), Cardinal linebacker Shayne Skov was jailed and booked for driving under the influence early in the morning on Sunday, Jan. 29.

The arrest, according to the report, happened near Skov’s residence at around 2 a.m. Below is a statement issued by coach David Shaw to the Daily:

“We have an expected standard of excellence and conduct for our football players and Shayne failed to adhere to those standards.It’s a matter we are taking very seriously. Shayne will be responsible to adhere to any legal responsibilities regarding this event, along with internal ramifications, which will be determined by the program.”

Stanford would not comment further on Skov’s future status with the team.

Skov was the leading tackler for Stanford in 2010 and had 19 tackles this past season before a knee injury sidelined him for the remainder of the season.

    Stanford PD *actually* arrested a Stanford student?


    There used to be order in the universe. Now… there is just chaos.

    Look… the chief of the Stanford PD is….. a Stanford employee and Stanford alumna. It wouldn’t matter so much if the police weren’t actually County of Santa Clara sheriff deputies. That’s right: the Stanford ‘police’ are actually public employees who answer to a Stanford employee.

    If *that* isn’t a whole kettle of conflict-of-interest, I don’t know what is.
