Now that National Signing Day has passed, we can all get back to College Players Getting In Trouble With The Law Season. Today we turn our attention to North Carolina sophomore running back A.J. Blue, who was arrested on Sunday morning. Blue was charged with driving while impaired, driving with an open container of alcohol and failure to maintain lane control.
As we all know, with any running back, lane control is vital to success. Pick the wrong lane and a 15-yard gain can become a 2-yard loss.
According to police, Blue's blood alcohol level was found to be 0.12. His court date is set for March 7.
Blue did let the team know of his arrest, and team spokesman Kevin Best said that any discipline will be handled internally. Blue played in six games for the Tar Heels in 2009, but missed the rest of the season after tearing his MCL, PCL and ACL.
