Ole Miss' Charles Sawyer arrested for DUI ahead of Texas game, according to report

Grant Halverson

Charles Sawyer's career with the Rebels hangs in the balance after reportedly being hauled in for DUI early Sunday morning.

Ole Miss defensive back Charles Sawyer was apparently arrested on Sunday morning and has reportedly been charged with DUI, according to Inside Ole Miss Sports. Head coach Hugh Freeze said that he's aware of the situation, but there's no indication at this point what the repercussions will be for Sawyer on the football field.

Sawyer has yet to play for the Rebels this year, as he's been dealing with a shoulder injury. He was expected to be ready for the Texas game this weekend, but there's more to the situation now than health considerations.

Sawyer, a senior from Miami, has seven career interceptions for the Rebels. He only brought in one pick last season, but did break up eight passes.
