Texas Tech wide receiver Darrin Moore has been suspended from the team after being arrested for DWI.

Back in April, Texas Tech wide receiver Darrin Moore was arrested on charges of a DWI. Associate Athletics Director for Communications Blayne Beal on Tuesday announced that Moore has been suspended from the team indefinitely, according to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.

Beal was firm during a phone conversation with The Avalanche-Journal and said Moore's actions are not condoned by the university and he "made a poor choice."

Moore was arrested April 13 on the 2300 block of Buddy Holly Avenue around 1:45 a.m. by Lubbock police Officer Charley Brewer, according to the crime report.

If Moore is convicted of DWI, he could face $2,000 in fines, jail time of up to 180 days, a potential one-year probation, and a suspended driver's license. Last season for the Red Raiders, Moore caught 47 passes for 571 yards and eight touchdowns.
