Lyndell Gibson started every game at linebacker for Virginia Tech last season before breaking his shoulder in the ACC Championship Game in December. That injury forced Gibson to miss the Hokies' Orange Bowl loss to Stanford, and the subsequent surgery on his shoulder left his status in doubt for practice this spring. All of which left Gibson with a lot of free time lately, and we all know what happens to college football players when you give them too much free time.
Gibson was hit with a DWI earlier this month, reports The Virginian-Pilot.
Virginia Tech linebacker Lyndell Gibson, a former Salem High standout, is facing a DWI charge stemming from an incident this month in Montgomery County.
The redshirt sophomore was arrested and charged on Feb. 5 with what is deemed a Class 1 misdemeanor, according to court documents.
He is due in court April 27. No other details of his arrest were available Thursday evening.Virginia Tech is yet to issue a statement on Gibson's arrest, or announce any punishment.
Gibson has played in 25 games for the Hokies in his career, starting 18 of them. In that time he's picked up 119 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble.
