WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -Purdue wide receiver Selwyn Lymon was dismissed from the team Tuesday after being charged with drunken driving for the second time this year.
``Selwyn is the victim of making some very poor choices, and, in addition to dealing with the legal ramifications of those poor choices, he no longer will be a part of the football program at Purdue,'' coach Joe Tiller said in a statement.
A Tippecanoe County court magistrate on Monday ordered Lymon jailed without bond. He also was charged with resisting arrest and operating a vehicle without an ignition interlock device required as a condition of previous charges.
The Associated Press left a phone message seeking comment from his lawyer, Mathew Scott Sandy.
Police said Lymon had a blood-alcohol content of 0.15 percent, nearly double the legal limit for driving in Indiana, when he was stopped about 3:15 a.m. Sunday in West Lafayette.
Prosecutors filed drunken driving and other charges against Lymon in September, following a March 20 fight outside a West Lafayette nightclub during which he was stabbed in the chest.
Lymon caught three passes for 35 yards Saturday during Purdue's 27-24 loss to Indiana. The junior from Fort Wayne had 40 catches for 450 yards and two touchdowns for Purdue (7-5, 3-5 Big Ten).
Tiller said he planned to meet with Lymon.
``As a human being, we will support him and do whatever we can to help him earn his degree,'' Tiller said.
