Backup Missouri linebacker Noah Robinson is indefinitely suspended from the Tigers football team after he was arrested early Friday morning on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.
Robinson, 23, a graduate transfer walk-on linebacker from Memphis, Tenn., has only played on special teams this season and isn’t on Missouri’s depth chart.
According to MU Police, Robinson was arrested at 3:04 a.m. at Stadium Boulevard and College Avenue and was transported to Boone County Prison with bond set at $500. He was later released on bail. A DWI is a Class B misdemeanor for a first-time offender.
Missouri’s student-athlete handbook states that an athlete arrested for DWI will be suspended from team activities for a minimum of a week for first-time offenders. Robinson’s arrest was first reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
The Tigers play at Purdue at 6:30 p.m. Saturday.
