Oregon State quarterback Peter Lalich spent several hours in a Shasta County jail over the weekend after being arrested on suspicion of boating DUI, becoming the seventh OSU player or former player to run afoul of the law since last month. Lalich, 21, was with a group of students at Lake Shasta on Friday when officers cited him.
He is to be arraigned on June 21 at the Shasta County Courthouse. Boating DUI is a serious offense in the state of California that carries penalties in some cases as steep as drunk driving in a car. Fines can range from $500 to $7,500 and jail time can be as long as two years in extreme cases.
College jocks arrested for drunk driving? A dime a dozen.
College jocks arrested for drunk driving a boat? Now that takes a special kind of stupid.
