Stefan Moody arrested for DUI in Oxford

Ole Miss' senior guard was arrested for first-offense DUI early on Saturday morning.

Not good: Ole Miss sniper and 2015 SEC-leading scorer Stefan Moody picked up a DUI arrest in Oxford early Saturday morning, The Clarion-Ledger reports. Of all your priorities while rehabbing a stress fracture in your left tibia, drinking and driving in Lafayette County should most assuredly rank far, far down the list.

News last month of Moody's surgery and 8-12 week recovery caused few ripples among the Ole Miss basketball cognoscenti, since Stefan was expected to be back in playing shape for preseason camp. Now it appears that the minuscule marksman will have to sit out a handful of early-season games on account of offseason boneheadedness. C'mon, man.

Police stopped Moody at 1:17 a.m. Saturday for failure to yield. Moody was booked at 1:45 AM, after being charged with first-offense DUI, failure to yield, and no liability insurance. He was released about four hours later. The university is still "gathering information" on Stefan's situation, which, if we're being honest, pales in comparison to another Rebel gunner's dust-ups so long ago.

In any case, based on Hendo's three-game suspension for a failed drug test and probation violation, expect something like a two- or three-game suspension for old Moody, and here's hoping that dude takes a cab next time.
