FSU receiver suspended after arrest on DUI charge

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State coach Bobby Bowden has indefinitely suspended senior wide receiver Rod Owens on Monday after the player's weekend drunk driving arrest.

Police spokesman David McCranie said that Owens was arrested in Tallahassee on a DUI charge after blowing nearly double the state's legal standard of .08 on a breath test early Sunday. He was released from jail later that day.

The school said it would not have any further comment on the incident.

Owens didn't return a message left for him at the school and a home telephone listing wasn't available.

Five player — all receivers — sat out at least one game last fall for their role in a noon-hour campus brawl that led to the arrest of two players. One of those athletes, sophomore Bert Reed, was suspended three times last season for different reasons.

Receiver and punt returner Preston Parker was kicked off the team in February after multiple arrests.
