Texas freshman backup quarterback Connor Brewer was arrested for public intoxication and carrying a fake driver’s license early Saturday morning.
Brewer, 19, was booked into Travis County Jail and released about 11 hours later, according to the county’s sheriff’s department. The misdemeanors carry a fine of up to $500 per charge, if convicted.
Brewer is expected to compete for playing time this year. He did not appear in a game last season.
“We’re aware of Connor’s situation and are disappointed anytime one of our players is accused of wrongdoing,” coach Mack Brown said in a statement. “We’ve talked with his family and will continue to monitor the situation. Following the completion of the legal process, we will do what’s best for the university, Connor and the team. We’ve always prided ourselves in our program’s family atmosphere, and this will be handled within our family.”
