BLOG — Headlines from early in the week that focused on the transgression of Ole Miss quarterback Randall Mackey now includes the transgression of a former Ole Miss quarterback today.
Jevan Snead was arrested on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol and running a stop sign Friday morning in Oxford. Snead, who helped lead the Rebels to back-to-back berths in the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic, was arrested by Oxford Police Department officer Hildon Sessums at 1:50 this morning. Snead was booked into the Lafayette County Detention Center and released at 6:30.
According to records at the LCDC, Snead will have to appear in municipal court at a later date to face the two charges.
Snead left Ole Miss after the 2009 season and entered the NFL Draft. Snead, who transferred to Ole Miss from Texas, had one year of eligibility remaining when he left school. Snead went undrafted, but he was signed as a free agent by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in April, 2010. Snead was released twice by the Bucs, with the final time coming on Sept. 4, 2010.
He had signed a deal with the Tampa Bay Storm, an Arena Football League team, this past January, but was released just before the season started on March 6. (November 18, 2011)
