Unbelievably, there was a (gasp!) underage college student caught consuming alcohol a couple of weeks ago. Even more unbelievable? He was a football player!
That said, The Tennessean reported Wednesday night that Tennessee’s Jalen Hurd was cited Dec. 3 for underage drinking. The 18-year-old Hurd, along with another male, were arrested by UT police, with one of the two transported to a local hospital.
Which one of the two was transported, though, is unknown.
Hurd, 18, and Hunter Rivait, who is listed as a student in a university student directory, were arrested by citation on Dec. 3 after police spotted a car with its lights on in a university dorm parking garage. Police found an unconscious male inside.
The initial University of Tennessee police report does not identify the unconscious male, who was later transported to a hospital.
UT officials said Hurd has been disciplined internally and will play against Iowa in the Jan. 2 TaxSlayer Bowl.
As a true freshman in 2014, Hurd led the Vols with 777 yards rushing. The next-closest back was Marlin Lane and his 279 yards.
