Starting TTU O-lineman arrested on misdemeanor charges

texas tech

One Texas Tech player found a constructive way to celebrate last Saturday’s blowout win over West Virginia, it seems.

Per multiple media outlets, starting Red Raiders offensive lineman Deveric Gallington was arrested on charges of misdemeanor public intoxication and disorderly conduct over the weekend after police were dispatched to break up a bar fight near campus early Sunday morning. In all, three people were arrested. Details of the fight, including who started it, are scarce, but there are no known reports of injuries stemming from the fight.

TTU spokesperson Blayne Beal said there has been no change in Gallington’s status for this Saturday’s game against TCU, meaning he will play against the Horned Frogs. Gallington was released from jail Sunday and faces more than $500 in fines.

    TCU sends their guy to rehab and TTU lets their guy play.

    Don’t forget Daniel Cobb … the guy accused of breaking and entering and assault on a female … charges were mysteriously dropped by the DA… He will be on the field as well Saturday even though he was dismissed from Texas Tech back in August. Oh well…

    Shame on TTU if he is allowed to play this week.

    Don’t these players realize that they only hurt themselves and the team when they do such stupid things as going out and drinking too much. Nothing good ever comes of it. Only bad things happen after midnight in a college town.

    I hardly think TCU has any room to talk. Half their team is on drugs so they don’t do regular testing. People in glass houses?
