TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- A Florida State wide receiver accused
of driving drunk is the latest Seminole at that position to get in
trouble.
Police spokesman David McCranie says senior Rod Owens was
arrested in Tallahassee on a DUI charge after blowing nearly double
the state's legal standard of .08 on a breathalyzer early Sunday.
The 22-year-old from Jacksonville was released from jail later that
day.
Owens didn't immediately return a message left for him with the
athletic department, and a home listing couldn't be found.
A Florida State spokesman says coaches are meeting Monday and
didn't immediately have a comment.
Five other Seminole receivers were suspended for a game in
November after a campus brawl. Receiver Preston Parker was kicked
off the team in February after multiple arrests.
