Montana football player cited for DUI

MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — A University of Montana football player is charged with driving under the influence after a Missoula police officer stopped him for speeding.

The Missoulian reports  William “Bo” Harris was stopped for driving 45 mph in a 25 mph zone early on April 14.

Court records say Harris’ blood-alcohol level was 0.097 percent, which is over the legal driving limit of 0.02 percent for people under the age of 21. The redshirt freshman from Fairfield also was cited for speeding and underage drinking.

Senior associate athletic director Jean Gee says Harris has been sanctioned under the school’s student-athlete code of conduct. She said privacy regulations prevent the school from saying what the sanctions are.
