 KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Tennessee punter Britton Colquitt was suspended for five games and lost his scholarship after he was arrested on charges of DUI and leaving the scene of an accident early Sunday morning.
The 22-year-old hit a parked car around 2 a.m. EST and then fled the scene, said Lt. Mark Pressley, a Knoxville police spokesman.
``I am very disappointed that Britton doesn't appreciate the blessings he has been given from his family and his team,'' coach Phillip Fulmer said in a press release announcing the suspension Sunday evening.
``Along with the five-game suspension, I am taking his scholarship away and he will be required to undergo alcohol counseling as well as other internal punishments.''
Pressley said Monday night that Colquitt was visibly intoxicated and could not complete field sobriety tests.
Colquitt, who decided not to enter the NFL draft and to return to Tennessee for his senior year, was suspended from the team as a freshman in 2004 when he faced multiple alcohol-related charges stemming from several incidents.
He was reinstated later in the year after he pleaded no contest to a charge of underage alcohol consumption and a judge sentenced him to nearly a year of probation.
Colquitt, younger brother of All-American punter Dustin Colquitt, is the fourth member of his family to punt at Tennessee.
