Miller, a redshirt freshman, was arrested by Ohio State Highway Patrol officers Friday morning. According to the police report, Miller refused a Breathalyzer test and was also cited for driving in marked lanes. He was released from custody Friday and was issued a summons to appear in court for the offense.
Ohio State confirmed in a statement that Miller had been suspended but did not specify a length of time or parameters for the suspension.
Jack Miller has attempted 14 passes this season, completing seven for 101 yards. He was dressed for Ohio State’s game against Penn State on Oct. 30 and went through warm-ups with starter C.J. Stroud and backups Kyle McCord and Quinn Ewers.
William Mote, Georgia football long snapper, apparently celebrated his team’s national championship victory a little too enthusiastically.
According to a report from the Athens Banner-Herald, William Mote was arrested in the early morning after allegedly breaking a single pane window of a downtown Athens law office.
“William Mote told Athens-Clarke County police he was intoxicated after drinking at the Silver Dollar Bar, went to see a friend and mistakenly went to the law office, according to a police incident report,” the Banner-Herald wrote.
The redshirt sophomore, who has been the Bulldogs’ long snapper on punts the last two seasons, was charged with a second degree felony for damage of greater than $500. He was booked into the Clarke County Jail and eventually released on a $1,300 bond.
Georgia capped off a 14-1 season with a 33-18 victory over Alabama in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game last Monday night.
Alabama defensive coordinator Pete Golding was arrested early Thursday morning for DUI, according to Tuscaloosa County jail records. The report states Stephen Thomas Golding was arrested by the Northport Police Department around 1 a.m. and jailed overnight with a bond set at $500.
“I am deeply sorry for the actions that led to my arrest last night. I sincerely apologize to my family, everyone in our organization, including our players, Coach Saban, the staff, The University of Alabama, and our fans,” wrote Golding in an apology released by the university. “Regardless of the outcome of this pending investigation, I did not uphold the values I have for myself and the values of the Alabama football program. I am committed to learning and growing from this mistake and I will work to earn back the trust of those who I have disappointed.”
Golding, who is 37 and goes by Pete, was hired by Alabama in 2018 to be the team’s inside linebackers coach and co-defensive coordinator along with Tosh Lupoi, but he was elevated to the sole DC position following Lupoi’s departure in 2019. Alabama has finished in the top three in the SEC in total defense in three of Golding’s four seasons in Tuscaloosa. The 2021 Crimson Tide defense finished second in the SEC, allowing just 304.1 yards per game, and third in defensive yards per play at 4.77.
“Alabama Athletics is aware of the incident involving Pete Golding,” said a school statement. “We are mindful of the seriousness of the situation and will continue to gather more information to address this personnel matter.”

CENTRE COUNTY Pa. — Jonathan Sutherland, a Penn State Football player, was charged July 2 for firing a gun that had a stray bullet wind up in a person’s condo in Patton Township.
According to Patton Township police, redshirt senior safety, Jonathan Sutherland, 22, was charged with one misdemeanor count of criminal mischief in Centre County.
Sutherland was at a party when he discharged the 9 mm handgun across the courtyard into a narrow line of trees, May 21, according to police.
Police found that Sutherland had “little to no experience handling a firearm,” according to the criminal complaint. Sutherland told police he got the gun from another person at the party and was told that the firearm “was not loaded.”
After firing the gun, the bullet traveled to a resident’s condo and went through a guest bathroom before going through the master bathroom and then falling to the floor. The bullet caused around $2,000 worth of damages, according to police.
Along with the misdemeanor charge for criminal mischief, Sutherland is also charged with disorderly conduct. He has a preliminary hearing scheduled for August 4.
“We are aware of the charges against Jonathan Sutherland. These alleged actions do not reflect the values and standards of our program and will be addressed,” Penn State Athletics said, in a statement.
“We will not comment any further as this is an ongoing legal matter,” they continued.
Oklahoma football player Isaiah Thomas was arrested early Sunday morning for failing to appear on a previous petty larceny charge and was booked overnight into the Cleveland County Detention Center.
The Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office didn’t include any details about the petty larceny, but reported that Thomas was arrested at 2:08 a.m. and was booked at 2:59 a.m.
Thomas is a senior defensive lineman at OU who emerged as one of the team’s best players during the 2020 season.
Thomas led the Sooners with 13 tackles for loss and 8.5 quarterback sacks in his first season as a starter.
The 6-foot-5, 270-pound senior from Tulsa finished the year with 32 total tackles and had eight quarterback hurries as he swung back and forth between defensive end and defensive tackle.
He redshirted in 2017, played in nine games as a backup in 2018, and appeared in 11 games as a backup in 2019.
Thomas earned second-team All-Big 12 Conference honors last season and was also landed a spot on the Academic All-Big 12 team.
According to Brazos County jail records, the wide receiver was arrested on assault of a family member charges on Sunday, June 20. His bond was set at $5,000 following the arrest on assault charges.

According to multiple reports, Bouknight was arrested at 3:56 a.m. by the Erlanger Police Department.
The Courier-Journal of Louisville reported that Bouknight was also charged with possession of an open alcoholic beverage and for driving 26 mph or more over the speed limit, citing Kenton County public records.
Bouknight has a court appearance scheduled for Friday.
The 37-year-old Bouknight is entering his second season at Kentucky after previous coaching stops at Utah State, Texas Tech and Oregon.
Bouknight was a college star at Wyoming and caught 250 passes for 3,626 yards and 29 touchdowns in 47 games from 2002-05. The catches rank second in school history and the yardage and touchdown catches are third.
He topped 1,000 receiving yards twice and had his best campaign as a senior when he had 77 receptions for 1,116 yards and 12 scores.
Oklahoma wide receiver Trejan Bridges and running back Seth McGowan are considered suspects in a robbery currently under investigation by the Norman Police Department, as reported by multiple outlets Saturday.
Several NPD officers apprehended Bridges at approximately 10:45 p.m. Thursday night less than a mile from campus, and police on the scene disclosed that the redshirt sophomore wide receiver had been detained in connection with an alleged robbery involving firearms at the Crimson Park apartment complex. Bridges was unaccompanied at the time of his detainment.
The Norman Police Department told OUInsider that officers had responded to reports of said robbery shortly after 10:00 p.m., and said that one person had been injured but was not hospitalized. NPD emphasized that no arrests have been made yet, and Bridges was released from police custody upon questioning.
This isn’t Bridges’ first scrape, as he missed all but two games of the 2020 season as he served a suspension related to a positive drug test. The former blue-chip recruit, who hails from the DFW metroplex, signed with the Sooners alongside fellow elite wideouts Jadon Haselwood and Theo Wease with the class of 2019. Many expected the trio to comprise one of the most dangerous receiving corps in the nation, but that vision hasn’t yet come to fruition due to Bridges’ suspension and Haselwood’s struggles with injuries.
Over his first two seasons as a Sooner, Bridges reeled in nine total passes for 101 yards and two touchdowns. He’d earned rave reviews throughout the spring of 2021, as quarterback Spencer Rattler called Bridges a “mismatch” and touted their chemistry throughout spring practices. Bridges himself expressed that he was in the best physical shape of his life.
Meanwhile, McGowan burst onto the scene as a true freshman in 2020, scoring two touchdowns in his first game as a Sooner and closing the year with 143 total yards on four touches in Oklahoma’s 55-20 victory over Florida in the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic. He signed with the Sooners in the class of 2020 as a four-star recruit.
McGowan and Bridges have been suspended by the Oklahoma football program pending investigation. A Norman Police Department representative told OUInsider that detectives are gathering the facts of the case and should have updates in the coming days.
