Georgia Tech baseball was arrested and charged with  DUI in early February. 

The Georgia State Patrol pulled over the 21 year old young man in Buckhead on February 3 after crossing out of his lane several times.  He admitted to the officer that he had consumed a bourbon and Coke earlier and the officer noticed the suspect's eyes were bloodshot and watery. 

The player refused a breath test and was charged with DUI/less safe and failure to maintain lane.  Should he be convicted, he may be subject to other disciplinary actions. Georgia Tech's code of conduct for student-athletes doesn't have any rules specific to DUIs but it does have a student code of conduct that includes a provision prohibiting alcohol violations including underage use or possession of alcohol and behavior, while under the influence of alcohol that endangers any person. Discipline ranges from a warning to expulsion. He turned 21 last year. 

He has been suspended for the second game of the baseball season and may be subject to further disciplinary action by the team coach.
