The offseason arrest train continues to roll on. It’s been eventful for everyone accept the actual college programs, who dread this time of year.
On Wednesday, The Salt Lake Tribune reported that Utah State linebacker Jake Doughty was arrested for supplying alcohol to two underage females on Tuesday.
From the sounds of it, Doughty was simply taking in spring break in Southern Utah and had purchased beer for a group of friends. Rangers of Sand Hollow State Park pulled Doughty and the boat over for an inspection when it was discovered that the two females aboard were underage and drinking.
“Doughty stated that he had purchased the alcohol and supplied it to [the pair],” according to court documents. “Doughty stated that he was responsible for everything.”
Doughty reportedly pleaded not guilty “to the class A misdemeanor count of furnishing alcohol to a minor” on Wednesday.
Unfortunately, for Utah State’s leading tackler, it’s not the first run-in with the law. Doughty was charged with “possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia” last June.
