Mizzou LB Will Ebner Reportedly Arrested On Suspicion Of DWI

New, 2 comments

Missouri Tigers LB Will Ebner was arrested on suspicion of DWI early Sunday morning, according to the Boone County Sheriff's Department.

Per Dave Matter of the Columbia Tribune:

Ebner’s eyes were bloodshot and glassy and his speech was incoherent, according to the arrest report. He admitted he had been drinking and was cooperative, O’Sullivan said. The junior linebacker failed a breathalyzer test and was taken into custody at Boone County Jail where he posted $500 bond and was released.

Ebner was the No. 2 middle linebacker and hasn't been practicing for a week with a hamstring pull.

According to the Kansas City Star, MU officials are not commenting and said the situation will be handled internally.

SB Nation's Rock M Nation has this to say on Ebner:

Come on, dude.  I mean, first of all ... I'm accepting of the fact that college students drink.  I did.  But ... the season has started!  Put it aside for a little while.  Second ... you're a football player. You know people.  HAVE SOMEBODY ELSE DRIVE.  So stupid.  I assume the punishment will end up in the "one-game suspension" range, and in theory Mizzou won't need him against Illinois.  But you're one of this team's few upper-classmen.  Act like it.
