COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- A reserve tight end at Missouri has been arrested for driving while intoxicated, the program's third alcohol-related arrest this month.
Beau Brinkley, who is also Missouri's long snapper, was arrested early Sunday in Columbia and charged with DWI by the state Highway Patrol. He was also cited for having improperly tinted vehicle windows. A team spokesman said disciplinary issues would be handled internally.
Reserve linebacker Will Ebner and assistant football coach Bruce Walker have also been arrested in recent weeks for possible drunken-driving violations. Neither has been charged with a crime.
Missouri coach Gary Pinkel indefinitely suspended starting tailback and team captain Derrick Washington late last week for undisclosed reasons. Boone County court documents show Washington had been served with a protection order in June and accused of sexual assault by a woman.
