 LOS ANGELES (AP) -USC safety Josh Pinkard was arrested earlier this month on suspicion of driving under the influence, coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday.
Carroll planned to speak with Pinkard, a 21-year-old junior, either Tuesday evening or Wednesday.
``We're looking into it, and we'll find out the details,'' Carroll said. ``As usual, we'll handle it internally. We take this seriously, and we want to make sure we understand all of the circumstances.''
Pinkard could not immediately be reached for comment. It was not known whether he had an attorney.
Pinkard missed nearly all last season after injuring a knee in the opener against Arkansas. He redshirted last season and had reconstructive surgery. He was expected to play a significant role in the upcoming season for the Trojans, who were No. 4 in the final AP Top 25.
Authorities said Pinkard was arrested in the early morning of May 18 after a California Highway Patrol officer noticed a car swerving on a local freeway. The CHP report identified Pinkard as a USC student, but did not mention the football team.
Pinkard was scheduled to appear in court July 24.
