MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - The Dominion Post of Morgantown is
reporting that a West Virginia University football player and a
former player were arrested over the weekend.
The newspaper says former Mountaineer running back Jason
Gwaltney was charged by the Monongalia County Sheriff's Department
Saturday with underage consumption of alcohol, speeding and failure
to produce an operator's license. The paper said free safety
Quinton Andrews was charged with obstructing an officer.
Details about the alleged crimes are not available at this time.
Mike Parsons, W-V-U's deputy director of athletics, says he's
not aware of either arrest.
Gwaltney, a top recruit out of high school, played in six games
in 2005 as a true freshman. He rushed for 186 yards and three
touchdowns before getting injured and then reprimanded for missing
workouts and class.
In December 2005, West Virginia coach Rich Rodriguez said
Gwaltney was no longer on the team.
Andrews started in 13 of W-V-U's 14 games last year as a
redshirt freshman. He led the team in tackles and interceptions and
earned All-American honors.
