Mississippi State QB Dak Prescott has issued a statement to Ian Rapoport regarding his arrest Saturday morning for driving under the influence.
“I want to make a statement, and first take complete responsibility for my actions. I’m very remorseful for my misjudgment. I want to apologize to my true supporters, my family, Mississippi State University, the NFL and the kids who look up to me. I won’t ask for forgiveness; however, I’ll show the true man I am and exhibit my character through my actions and behavior moving forward.”
Starkville Police Chief Frank Nichols tells the Clarion-Ledger that former Mississippi State QB Dak Prescott was arrested early Saturday morning and charged with driving under the influence.
According the report, Prescott as pulled over while driving his 2016 Cadillac Escalade and arrested.
His agency has yet to respond to requests from the Clarion-Ledger regarding a comment on the matter.
Prescott has been a hot name in recent months after he was named the Most Outstanding Player at the Senior Bowl back in January. His name has come up as a potential mid-round target for teams looking to a quarterback, but this news could have an impact on his draft status, as teams will question his judgement after getting arrested close to a month before the NFL Draft.
During his four-year career at Mississippi State, Prescott threw for 9,376 yards to go along with 70 touchdowns and 23 interceptions. He also ran for 2,521 yards and caught four passes for 88 yards receiving and scored 44 total touchdowns from scrimmage.
