The 22-year-old senior, who transferred from Oklahoma, was arrested after he pulled over for a traffic stop, refused a breathalyzer and requested a blood test, according to his attorney.
Neither of the tests was administered before Quinn posted $500 bail. He pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor charge the same day.
``He disputes that he was impaired at all,'' said Paul Ryan, Quinn's attorney. ``We continue to monitor his alcohol use, but he's been really compliant and just wants get these matters resolved.''
Quinn was arrested in Missoula in July on another DUI charge. He pleaded not guilty to that charge and is awaiting trial.
Quinn, an All-Big Sky selection last season, has been suspended from the team until further notice, athletic director Jim O'Day said.
Around the time of last year's DUI arrest, the NCAA forced Oklahoma to vacate eight wins from the 2005 season because Quinn and quarterback Rhett Bomar took money for work they didn't perform at a Norman, Okla., car dealership.
The players were dismissed from the team in August 2006 and lost a year of eligibility. They were eligible to play again last fall.
