Coincidentally, Carrington has been suspended indefinitely by Oregon football head coach Willie Taggart.

Taggart said though a UO spokesman that Carrington is suspended ‘from all football team activities after his arrest last night by the Eugene Police Department on a charge of Driving Under the Influence’ and that ‘we are continuing to gather the facts in this matter.’

Carrington is set to appear in Eugene Municipal Court on July 6.
