Indefinitely suspended for driving under the influence of intoxicants nearly two weeks ago, Oregon defensive lineman Isaac Remington has had his charge dropped by prosecutors, according to the Eugene Register-Guard.
“Evidence of whether or not his mental or physical faculties were adversely affected to a noticeable or perceptible degree cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt,” Prosecutor Dan Barkovic said.
Remington was stopped near campus on Oct. 12 by police for an “unspecified violation” and was subjected to field-sobriety tests. The senior registered a 0.06 percent blood-alcohol content — the legal limit is .08, although a person may be cited if an officer determines alcohol contributed to impaired driving — and was taken into custody (but not jailed), issued a citation and allowed to make a phone call for a ride home.
Remington, who has started six games on the season, did not play in last week’s win over Arizona State.
