Already this month, a pair of Oregon State defensive backs have been indefinitely suspended for various issues, legal and otherwise.
Ah, what the hell, what’s one more amongst friends, right?
According to the Corvallis Gazette-Times, cornerback Malcolm Marable was pulled over very early Sunday morning after he was clocked going 104 mph. Unfortunately, the speed limit wasn’t 105; it was merely 65 mph, and Marable was cited for “exceeding the speed limit 100+”, which carries a fine of $1,150.
The Gazette-Times also reports that Marable was warned for failure to carry proof of insurance and failure to carry registration. Additionally, the car, a 2005 Nissan Altima, was not registered in his name.
The incident is eerily similar to one that involved Oregon’s Cliff Harris last year, although Harris was clocked at 118 mph, showing that the Beavers still have a ways to go to catch up to its in-state rival’s speed both on and off the field.
Marable, who played in 12 games as a true freshman last season, was suspended indefinitely following the incident. He averaged nearly 25 yards on 13 kickoff returns.
DB Sean Martin was suspended after being arrested for drunk driving and fleeing police the weekend before last, while another member of the secondary, Mishawn Cummings, was suspended indefinitely for undisclosed reasons.
