Mizzou suspends Gary Pinkel 1 game after DWI arrest

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Missouri has suspended coach Gary Pinkel

for Saturday's game and frozen his salary for a year following his

overnight arrest on suspicion of drunk driving.

Athletic director Mike Alden announced the disciplinary measures

on Thursday afternoon. They include a total of some $300,000 in

penalties, including a donation to a campus alcohol-awareness

program, and 50 hours of community service.

He will miss Saturday's home game between Missouri (5-5) and

Texas Tech.

Boone County Sheriff's Office records show that deputies pulled

Pinkel over in Columbia and jailed him Wednesday night. He was

released from jail after posting a $500 bond. A county prosecutor

said that no decision had been made about filing formal criminal

charges.
