Mizzou Football Suspends DT Who Was Driving With Open Beer

On Saturday night Mizzou DT Jimmy Burge was pulled over by the police.

Burge, 21, was pulled over by Columbia police at 11:45 p.m. Saturday after making an illegal left turn. Police reported they found an open can of beer in the truck Burge was driving.

A blood alcohol test at the police office showed Burge was under the legal limit but he was cited for the illegal turn and for drinking an intoxicant while operating a vehicle, both misdemeanors.

That resulted in Mizzou head coach Gary Pinkel announcing that Burge had been suspended indefinitely.

Burge is a reseve defensive tackle.
