OGDEN, Utah (AP) - Authorities say a former football player at Weber State University has died after he was booked into a Utah jail.

The Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Office tells the Standard-Examiner that 32-year-old Trevyn Smith was taken to a hospital after he “suffered a medical incident” at the county jail on July 4.

Utah Highway Patrol troopers arrested Smith in downtown Salt Lake City on July 1.

Authorities say he had outstanding warrants, including failure to appear in court, driving under the influence and driving on a denied license.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Kevin Hunter says South Salt Lake City police are investigating the death. The jail also is conducting an internal investigation.
