Freshman punter arrested
UT freshman punter Britton Colquitt was arrested for the third time in less than seven months for underage possession of alcohol early Saturday morning.
Colquitt was arrested by UTPD officers after officers on patrol in Fraternity Park spotted him with a can of beer in front of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon House.
According to reports, Colquitt attempted to flee into the house and run up the stairs and was apprehended. He was transported to UTPD and issued a misdemeanor citation.
Last September, Colquitt was charged on two different occasions with underage consumption and for driving under the influence.
John Painter, a spokesman for the Sports Information Department, issued a statement on the situation Monday afternoon.
"Coach Phillip Fulmer is aware of the incident and is still gathering information from the UT Police investigation," Painter said.
Colquitt signed to play for the Vols in January, and began classes this semester. He is the younger brother of All-American punter Dustin Colquitt.
Track finishes sixth
Tennessee's track and field squad finished sixth after summing 60 points to conclude the SEC Indoor Championships Sunday at Kentucky's Nutter Field House.
The men's team race went down to the wire in a dramatic finish. Florida took the team title with 128 points, a mere two points ahead of Arkansas' 126. With the win, Florida joins Tennessee as the only teams to defeat Arkansas at an SEC championship meet since the Razorbacks joined the conference.
Auburn finished third with 83 points. LSU and Georgia tied for fourth with 71 points.
