Washington St UNLV Football AP

For the second time in the past couple of months, Mike Leach has an off-field incident involving one of his players with which to deal.

The Moscow-Pullman Daily News is reporting that Washington State’s Leon Brooks was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with driving under the influence.  The running back was pulled over by a Whitman County Sheriff’s deputy at around 3 a.m. local time after he was observed making a wide turn.

A pair of breathalyzer tests showed BAC levels of .088 and .092; .08 is the legal limit.

Wazzu has not yet indicated what type of punishment if any Brooks may be facing.

Last season as a junior, Brooks’ 78 yards on the ground were good for third on a team that finished with the worst yards-per-game average (29.1) of any of the 124 schools that played at the FBS level.  Brooks also accounted for one of the Cougars’ six rushing touchdowns.

    The quote below is from an ex-coug

    “”WSU is a hard school to go to, man,” Williams says. “You ain’t got nothin’ to do but get drunk and smoke weed, and not go to class because you’re too tired from doing what you’re doing.”

    Dear foreverlsu:

    Seriously? LSU has had their fair share of issues like this, no?

    The cops in Pullman are total A Holes! While at football camp for the summer literally at like 10pm in the dark I was stopped and harassed by the police /campus police about what I was just doing in the bushes a few seconds before. Well my friends I was pissing!!! I told him and despite the harmless gesture he wanted to contain me for indecent exposure! I was 17 a block and a half from my dorm… Thank goodness my dorm rep had was able to talk them out of it.

    Needless to say I went to the University of Washington anyway.. Stupid to drink and drive their the cops harass everyone yet alone those doing stupid sh*t
