Denzell Dotson arrested on suspicion of DUI

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — We've put together a short story about the arrest of WSU offensive lineman Denzell Dotson on early Sunday morning for suspicion of DUI.


PULLMAN – Washington State freshman offensive lineman Denzell Dotson was arrested on suspicion of DUI early Sunday morning in Pullman.

A WSU spokesman said coach Mike Leach is aware of the arrest and will take appropriate action. The Cougars continue spring practice at 3:10 p.m. Tuesday.

Sgt. Dan Hargraves said Dotson was pulled over by Pullman Police after he was seen driving the wrong way on Northeast Thatuna Street, a short one-way that heads northbound toward Colorado Street just west of Lower Soccer Field.

Dotson, 18, was administered a field sobriety test and blew into a portable BAC analyzer before he was arrested at about 1:18 a.m. Sunday, Hargraves said. Upon returning to the station, Dotson blew into a BAC machine and registered a blood-alcohol level in the .088 to .09 range. The legal blood-alcohol limit for minors in Washington is .02.

Dotson was cited and released, Hargraves said. He was not booked.

“Usually for DUIs, we just hold people here and let them sober up,” Hargraves said.

Dotson graduated from Cactus High School in Peoria, Ariz., in December and was one of four players from Leach’s first signing class to enroll at WSU in January. He is one of just three true freshman scholarship players to participate in spring practices, and the only one who graduated from high school this school year.
