Over the Memorial Day weekend, Indiana wide receiver Isaac Griffith was arrested on suspicion of operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. If you recall, Griffith nearly drowned in a swimming incident last March.
Griffith was arrested early Saturday morning after police pulled his vehicle over. He was allegedly driving a vehicle while intoxicated and also in possession of some alcohol.
More from Dwight Adams and Zach Osterman of the Indianapolis Star:
Griffith, a sophomore receiver from Fort Wayne, was booked on preliminary charges of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated with endangerment, operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated with a blood alcohol content above 0.08, and illegal consumption, according to Lt. Craig Munroe, a spokesman for the Indiana University Police Department.
Munroe said Griffith was arrested at 3:54 a.m., near the intersection of 19th and Dunn streets, when an officer noticed that his vehicle had its high beams on and pulled him over.
“Once the stop was made, the officer observed the odor of an alcoholic beverage,” Munroe said.
This comes nearly a year after Griffith almost died when he was caught in a riptide while swimming in the Gulf of Mexico while on vacation in Florida. Griffith was saved by one of his friends and was placed in a medical coma as a result of the accident.
