Report: Ole Miss DE Channing Ward pleads guilty to DUI
Backup Rebel defensive end Channing Ward was pulled over in January and charged with a DUI of another substance.
Former blue-chip recruit Channing Ward's Ole Miss career took an off-field setback this week as the rising junior defensive end reportedly pleaded guilty to a DUI charge.
The Clarion-Ledger reported that Ward had been pulled over after 1 a.m. on Jan 19 and booked on a first-offense charge of DUI of another substance -- i.e., an unspecified substance other than alcohol -- as well as lack of insurance and a broken taillight. Ward appeared in court Wednesday to provide proof of insurance and that the taillight had been fixed, but pleaded guilty to the DUI charge.
Per the Clarion-Ledger, Ward was sentenced to attend the Mississippi Alcohol Substance Abuse Program and Victims Impact classes and paid fines of just under $1,500.
Hugh Freeze said in a statement that "the matter is being addressed internally.”
Ward was a 247Sports composite five-star and top-50 overall recruit out of Aberdeen, Miss., in the class of 2012, Freeze's first in Oxford. But Ward struggled for regular playing time at end in his first two seasons, collecting 21 tackles as a freshman and 24 as a sophomore. He has 3.5 career tackles-for-loss and one sack.
