Deverell Biggs is currently sitting out the year as a redshirt junior, but he could be sitting out even more after being cited on suspicion of driving under the influence as well as leaving the scene of an accident in Omaha last weekend.

According to the Associated Press, Biggs was driving his Chevrolet Suburban at roughly 1:35 on Sunday morning when he backed into a parked car in Bellevue. Biggs spoke to the owner of the car for a short while before driving away.

Several miles down the road, Biggs was stopped by police, who had the 6-foot, 172-pound guard take a breathalyzer. His blood-alcohol content measured .134, over the legal limit of .08.

Biggs is only 20 years old. Thus, he was cited for a minor in possession and unsafe backing along with his DUI citation.

Coach Tim Miles said in a text message Wednesday he’s “greatly disappointed in the report and Deverell’s actions.” No decision has been made on disciplinary action.

Biggs has not accumulated any statistics in his three years on campus.
