Police say two University of Tennessee at Chattanooga players have been arrested on driving under the influence, being a minor in possession of alcohol and other charges.
News outlets cite a Chattanooga police arrest affidavit in reporting that a car driven by running back Isaiah Cobb was going 65 mph (105 kph) in a 35-mph (56 kph) zone early Saturday. The affidavit says the vehicle’s owner, linebacker Nyvin Nelson, was a passenger.
The affidavit says Cobb was charged with driving under the influence, possession of a handgun while under the influence, being a minor in possession of alcohol and speeding. Nelson was charged with driving under the influence by consent and being a minor in possession of alcohol.
Both 18-year-old freshmen are set to appear in court Thursday, the same day the Mocs open the season at home against Tennessee Tech.
A school spokesman didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Sunday.
