DALLAS (AP) - TCU quarterback Casey Pachall (PAW’-hall) has been arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.
Fort Worth policeSgt. Pedro Criado said Pachall was taken into custody early Thursday after he was pulled over for running a stop sign near TCU's Fort Worth campus. Criado says Pachall’s blood-alcohol level was above the legal limit, but wouldn’t provide specifics.
A jail official in nearby Mansfield said Pachall was being held on $1,000 bond. There was no information on an attorney.
TCU coach Gary Patterson said was aware of the arrest and had no further comment.
In February, Pachall admitted to police that he smoked marijuana and failed a drug test two weeks before his roommate was arrested in a sting operation.
