Utah State’s leading tackler arrested on alcohol charge

One of the most experienced and productive member of Utah State’s nationally-ranked defense has stepped into a little bit this offseason, the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

While the details are scant at the moment, linebacker Jake Doughty was charged Tuesday on suspicion of providing alcohol to a minor.  The arrest was made by a state park ranger and OMG flashback to Findlay State Park circa 1988.

A $1,050 bond was posted for the 21-year-old Doughty and he was released the same day from the Washington County Jail.

The school has not commented on the incident, the first of the off-field variety with which new head coach Matt Wells will be forced to deal.

As a redshirt junior last season, Doughty led the Aggies in tackles with 109 and was named a first-team All-WAC performer.  He’s played in 38 games the past three seasons.

    You mean a 21 year old was drinking with his friends or girlfriend(s) that were not 21! He better be suspended for the first play of spring ball. However, he was in Utah where drinking alcohol is punishable by death.

    I’d hope my leading tackler has a drinking problem. He needs to be as unstable as possible and go blow s**** up.

    Rumor has it that his 4 wives made him sleep on the couch after police released him. D’oh!
