Mizzou long snapper arrested for DWI

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


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.
