Missouri assistant arrested on DWI suspicion

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Missouri assistant football coach Bruce Walker was arrested by campus police late Monday on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

A campus police spokesman says the co-offensive line coach was behind the wheel of a parked car with its motor running outside the Mizzou Athletic Training Complex at 11:14 p.m.

Walker's attorney, Bogdan Susan (soo-SAHN'), says the 50-year-old coach had returned from a bus trip to Lake of the Ozarks along with the Missouri football coaching staff and their wives.

Walker could not be located for comment Tuesday. He's worked for head coach Gary Pinkel the past 14 years, including five at Toledo.

Team spokesman Chad Moller said Tuesday the incident has been investigated but that any disciplinary action would be handled internally.
