Ole Miss quarterback was arrested in Oxford Monday night for disorderly conduct stemming from a bar fight. He will reportedly miss the Rebels' first game against BYU.
Ole Miss quarterback Randall Mackey was arrested Monday night on charges of disorderly conduct, according to the Clarion-Ledger, throwing the Rebels' quarterback situation into more flux than it already was.
Mackey was reportedly in a fight outside Oxford bar The Lyric and was brought to the police station for the misdemeanor charge, and was released later that night.
