Ole Miss Cornerback Charles Sawyer Arrested for DUI

Kelly Lambert

Don't drink and drive, y'all.

Cornerback Charles Sawyer was arrested for driving under the influence after running a stop sign early Sunday morning on the Ole Miss campus, per Parrish Alford. Sawyer, a senior cornerback from Miami, had seen just limited action in the first game of this season due to a nagging shoulder injury, but that does not make any potential suspension any easier to stomach for we Ole Miss fans. The Rebels are thin at cornerback, with or without Sawyer.

Senquez Golson (who himself might not be 100% due to a hamstring injury), Mike Hilton, and Quintavius Burdette will likely see the lion's share of snaps at that position if Sawyer is held out this weekend against the Texas Longhorns in Austin.

This arrest comes as a bit of a surprise to those of us at the Cup, because Sawyer has never really been a troublemaker. He's never been in any sort of legal or academic trouble, and has never suffered as much as a quarter-long suspension due to the ever ambiguous "violation of team rules." Seems to us like he did something stupid and will pay a hefty consequence for it. There's a lesson to be learned from this, kids, and that's to become famous and wealthy enough to hire your own driver.

We will fill you in with additional details as they become available.
