KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer made his team take an early morning run as punishment for the arrest of a freshman running back.
Daryl Vereen was charged with public intoxication early Monday morning.
After a Tennessee player was arrested for the second time in less than two weeks, Fulmer said he made the entire team run at 6 a.m. Tuesday to show he wasn't going to tolerate such behavior. He also said Vereen will have to do community service and participate in police ride-alongs as part of his violation of team rules.
The Knoxville News Sentinel reported Vereen was arrested after university police responded to a fight outside a dormitory.
Freshmen receivers Gerald Jones and Ahmad Paige were charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana following a traffic stop Jan. 11 in the Fort Sanders area. Police found marijuana in a vehicle driven by Jones, which was registered to Paige.
