OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA/AP) - Ole Miss cornerback Charles Sawyer was arrested and charged with DUI and running a stop sign on campus this weekend.
Lafayette County jail records state that Sawyer was arrested by a university police officer at 2 a.m. on Sunday and released five hours later after posting bail. The university police department declined to release further details.
In his weekly news conference, head coach Hugh Freeze addressed the situation, saying that Sawyer is one of the finest players on the team, but that there will be consequences for his actions.
Freeze added that those consequences would be handled "in-house".
The senior was a third team All-Southeastern Conference preseason selection, but has not played much this season because of a lingering shoulder injury.
Sawyer is one of the few veterans on defense as No. 25 Ole Miss (2-0) prepares to face Texas (1-1) on Saturday in Austin, Texas.
