AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas backup quarterback Connor Brewer was arrested for minor in possession of alcohol and public intoxication by the University of Texas police department early Saturday morning.
Brewer was booked into the Travis County Central Booking facility at 2:49 a.m. Saturday, according to the inmate information provided by the Travis County Sheriff. No charges had been filed as Saturday.
"We're aware of Connor's situation and are disappointed anytime one of our players is accused of wrongdoing," Texas coach Mack Brown said in a statement. "We've talked with his family and will continue to monitor the situation. Following the completion of the legal process, we will do what's best for The University, Connor and the team. We've always prided ourselves in our program's family atmosphere, and this will be handled within our family."
Brewer, 19, is a redshirt freshman who has yet to play for Texas. The Scottsdale, Ariz., product is one of five quarterbacks vying for snaps in 2013. He was rated as the No. 7 quarterback in the Class of 2012 and was ranked No. 130 in the ESPN 150.
Brewer’s arrest came only hours after Texas revealed his position coach, Major Applewhite, had an affair with a student during the 2009 Fiesta Bowl activities.
