Darren Carrington is in trouble again. Is this the end of his time with the Oregon Ducks?
Carrington was arrested on a DUI charge for smashing into a McDonald’s drive through and was subsequently suspended by the university. Andrew Greif at the Oregonian has more.
Carrington was arrested at 3:15 a.m. Saturday after allegedly colliding with a drive-through at a McDonald's at 659 E. Broadway near downtown Eugene, according to Eugene police spokeswoman Melinda McLaughlin.
Through a UO spokesman, Taggart said that UO has indefinitely suspended Carrington "from all football team activities after his arrest last night by the Eugene Police Department on a charge of Driving Under the Influence. We are continuing to gather the facts in this matter."
Carrington has gotten into one too many incidents during his time at Oregon.
- After a strong Rose Bowl performance back in 2015, Carrington was suspended before the national championship game for failing a drug test.
- He was cited for an open container in 2015.
- He was accused of breaking someone’s arm after shoving him against a curb last October.
Carrington had a very productive season (and three year stretch with Oregon), catching 43 passes for 606 yards and five touchdowns. He’s caught 112 passes for 1919 yards and 15 touchdowns during his time in Oregon. But you have to feel that all these incidents, when accumulated, are too much for Willie Taggart.
