Police spokesman David McCranie said that Owens was arrested in Tallahassee on a DUI charge after blowing nearly double the state's legal standard of .08 on a breath test early Sunday. He was released from jail later that day.
The school said it would not have any further comment on the incident.
Owens didn't return a message left for him at the school and a home telephone listing wasn't available.
Five player - all receivers - sat out at least one game last fall for their role in a noon-hour campus brawl that led to the arrest of two players. One of those athletes, sophomore Bert Reed, was suspended three times last season for different reasons.
