Tyler Bullock, a redshirt senior center on the UConn football team, was arrested early Thursday morning for driving under the influence of drugs/alcohol, according to The Daily Campus, the University of Connecticut’s student newspaper. The news came from a UConn police report.
The arrest took place at 12:47 a.m. Thursday on Celeron Square Drive after an officer stopped Bullock for failing to drive right, the Daily Campus reported. After being stopped, the 23-year-old Mechanicsburg, Pa., native failed field sobriety tests and was subsequently arrested for DUI, according to the report.
UConn issued a release Thursday afternoon stating that Bullock has been suspended indefinitely by interim head football coach T.J. Weist for “a violation of team rules.” The school announced it will have no further comment at this time.
The 6-foot-4, 316-pound Bullock has been listed as the Huskies’ No. 2 center for the first four games of the season.
He is due in court on Oct. 15
