AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -Texas defensive end Henry Melton was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated early Friday.
Melton was pulled over in the popular Sixth Street entertainment district after officers noticed his truck driving in an unsafe manner, police spokeswoman Laura Albrecht said.
University spokesman John Bianco said school officials were looking into the arrest. It was not immediately clear if Melton has an attorney.
The junior was a backup running back his first two seasons with the Longhorns before moving to defensive end this spring. Melton was expected to compete for playing time after the departure of both of last season's defensive end starters.
