WSU’s Brooks arrested for DUI

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — Washington State running back Leon Brooks was arrested early Sunday morning by a Whitman County Sheriff's Deputy on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.

The sheriff office’s arrest log shows Brooks was arrested at 3:01 a.m. on Sunday. According to an arrest report obtained by the Spokesman-Review, Brooks was pulled over after making a wide turn from Monroe Street onto Stadium Way.

Whitman County Sheriff’s Deputy Bryce Nebe reported that after he noticed an odor of intoxicants, he asked Brooks to step out of the car and perform a field sobriety test. The deputy concluded from that test that Brooks was impaired, transported him to the Pullman Police Department and administered two breathalyzer tests.

Brooks, age 21, allegedly blew a .088 and a .092 four minutes apart. The legal maximum in Washington is .08. Brooks was transported to the Whitman County Jail and was later released.

Brooks, who will be a fifth-year senior next season, was the Cougars’ primary punt returner the last two seasons.

WSU coaches are aware of the situation.
