Tennessee Football’s Problems Continue with Player Arrested

Share

Tennessee Vols have seen their fair share of problems with law enforcement over the past few years. This time defensive lineman Darel Middleton was arrested on domestic assault and public intoxication charges.

Allegedly, he shoved his girlfriend twice and caused an injury, which local gossip says to be a scraped knee, but the real extent of the injury is unknown.

An officer responded at 2:44 a.m. on Saturday for an incident that allegedly occurred in an alley behind Walgreens on Cumberland Avenue. Middleton was taken into custody at a nearby apparent complex.

UT team spokesman Bill Martin said:

“We’re aware of the incident, and we’re gathering more information.”

Middleton, 23, twice shoved his girlfriend to the ground after fighting with a male friend, according to an online arrest warrant. Middleton was jealous of one of his girlfriend’s male friends, “became very angry” and began fighting with his own friend, according to the report.

Middleton’s girlfriend tried to break up the fight, and Middleton shoved her to the ground, then apologized and hugged her, but then then shoved her again, according to the report.

When police located Middleton at a nearby apartment complex, he smelled of alcohol and had “blood shot eyes and slurred speech,” according to the online arrest warrant.

The police report stated that Middleton’s girlfriend was “crying and appeared to be in fear” when an officer spoke with her at the apartment complex.

Middleton is a senior and is a junior college transfer who played in high school at Oak Ridge. Last season he played in every game, started six and ended the season with 28 tackles.
