Boise State cornerback arrested for DUI

BOISE -- Boise State junior Michael Young was arrested for DUI early Sunday morning.

Boise Police officials say at 2:41 a.m. Sunday a vehicle was stopped after running through a red light as it turned onto Front Street from 6th Street in downtown Boise. The driver identified as Young failed a field sobriety test and blew a .142 breathalyzer test.

Young was arrested for misdemeanor driving under the influence.

Young's arrest comes on the heels of the Broncos' loss to Virginia on Friday night.

Young transferred to Boise State this summer from Dodge City Community College in Kansas City where he recorded 42 tackles (28 solo) and three tackles-for-loss.

Young was listed as a starter at cornerback heading into the season, but he has yet to start a game. He did not suit up for the season-opener and has been used in a backup role in each of the last three games. Young has a career-high four tackles in a 42-23 loss to Virginia on Friday.

This is the second arrest of a Boise State football player in eight days. Defensive lineman David Moa was arrested for disturbing the peace after allegedly getting into a shoving match with a man outside of a Boise nightclub.

Head coach Bryan Harsin said that a potential suspension for Moa would be handled internally. Moa did not play the first two defensive series for Boise State against Virginia and missed the entire first quarter.
