The Austin American-Statesman reports today that Austin police, according to Lt. David Crowder, arrested Texas Longhorns baseball coach Augie Garrido on drunken driving charges near downtown early today.
He has been suspended with pay indefinitely as information is gathered.
“This is a difficult and regrettable situation that we are taking very seriously,” Texas athletics director DeLoss Dodds said in a statement. “I spoke with Coach Garrido and he’s devastated and realizes he made a serious mistake. He deeply regrets putting the university in this position and will act quickly to do what’s right.”
