UT Vol freshman football player arrested

Tennessee freshman tailback Daryl Vereen was arrested and charged with public intoxication on Sunday evening outside of Gibbs Hall, a source within UT’s football program told the Knoxville News Sentinel.

Director of public relations Tiffany Carpenter said UT was not yet ready to release any information on the transgression or a subsequent punishment.

“Coach (Phillip) Fulmer is aware of the situation,” Carpenter said. “He is on the road recruiting and would like to discuss the punishment with the young man before we release anything publicly.”

Vereen redshirted this season after signing with the Vols out of North Mecklenburg High School in Charlotte, N.C.
