Mat Boesen, a red-shirt linebacker for Boise State’s football team, was arrested Thursday evening.
Boesen, 19, was charged with misdemeanor inattentive or careless driving and misdemeanor resisting or obstructing officers. He was booked in the jail at 7:41 p.m. but released later that same night.
The athletics department released a short statement saying they are aware of the situation and intend to follow the procedures outlined in the student conduct policy.
According to an article published by the Idaho Press Tribune Boesen is due in court on July 31.
Boesen, who red-shirted as a true freshman last year, was not expected to be a major contributor for the team this fall.
