Missouri Tigers quarterback Corbin Berstresser was arrested early Tuesday morning for fleeing the scene of a traffic accident.

The Missouri Tigers football team is now dealing with the arrest of backup quarterback Corbin Berkstresser, who is charged with fleeing the scene of an accident and could face felony charges for damage to another vehicle.

Columbia police took Berkstresser into custody at 3:34 a.m. and he was held on $4,500 bond, then released after posting bail. This is the word from the police report attained by the Columbia Tribune:

Columbia police were dispatched to the 2900 block of Lynnwood Drive at 1 a.m. after a parked vehicle on Lynnwood had been struck by another vehicle, Officer Latisha Stroer said. The damage was to the rear and front passenger side of the vehicle. Initial damage was estimated at more than $1,000, according to the probable cause statement. No one was hurt in the collision. Berkstresser admitted his involvement in the incident. The statement does not say how he was identified as the suspected driver.

Missouri had no comment on the status of Berkstresser in regards to the team. Berkstresser stepped in when starting quarterback James Franklin suffered a shoulder injury in March.
