Vandal receiver arrested in Pullman

Just three days before the start of Idaho's fall football camp, coach Robb Akey is dealing with another off-the-field issue. Backup wide receiver Robert Hatchett III was arrested in Pullman Sunday morning on allegedly driving under the influence. The junior from Compton, Calif., failed two field sobriety tests and was cited and released on the misdemeanor charge, according to KXLY.

In an email to the Idaho Statesmamn, UI publlicist Becky Paull said, “We are aware of this matter. It will be handled in a manner consistent with our departmental policy.”

Earlier this summer, linebacker Conrad Scheidt was also arrested on misdemeanor DUI charges.
