A University of Tennessee football player was arrested Saturday morning on charges of driving under the influence.
Quarterback Doak Raulston, who is sitting out the season due to NCAA rules after transferring from Louisiana Tech, was stopped for allegedly driving while impaired and violating the implied consent law.
WVLT reported Raulston posted a $1,000 bond and is due to appear in Knox County Sessions Court on Monday. Requests for more information on the arrest by the News Sentinel from the Knox County Sheriff's Office have not yet been granted.
Through a school spokesman, Vols coach Derek Dooley declined comment, but he's scheduled to speak during a weekly teleconference today at 5:30 p.m.
Raulston signed with Louisiana Tech in 2009 when Dooley was still coaching there, then transferred in August to reunite with him at UT. He was ranked a three-star prospect by Rivals.com out of All Saints Episcopal High School in Dallas.
Raulston completed 172 of 271 passes for 3,026 yards and 28 touchdowns his senior season. He also rushed for 840 yards and eight scores.
