Univ. of Oregon Ducks receiver Carrington suspended after his DUI arrest
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Oregon receiver Darren Carrington has been suspended from the team indefinitely after being arrested on a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence.
Eugene police say Carrington was arrested after hitting a pole at a McDonald's restaurant at 3:15 a.m. Saturday. In addition to DUI, Carrington was also cited for careless driving and making an improper turn.
The senior was suspended by Oregon later Saturday. Shortly thereafter, Carrington posted a photo showing some of his Ducks teammates on Instagram , writing: "Thanks for everything I'll truly miss my brothers love y'all."
The 22-year-old Carrington is scheduled to appear in Eugene Municipal Court on July 21.
Last season, he caught 43 passes for 606 yards and five touchdowns.
