Nai Fotu, Utah Linebacker, Suspended After DUI Arrest

Utah football coach Kyle Whittingham announced Monday that senior linebacker Nai Fotuhas been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules.

According to the The Salt Lake Tribune, Fotu was arrested Sunday on the suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. Fotu was stopped around 2 a.m. MT and booked into the Salt Lake County jail on suspicion of DUI and an open container in the vehicle. He also was speeding and failed to present a valid driver’s license.

This isn’t Fotu’s first run-in with the law. He already had a warrant from the Provo City Justice Court for failure to appear, giving false personal information to police, possessing alcohol or a controlled substance as a minor and public urination all stemming from an incident on March 20, 2009.

Fotu was a starter heading into last spring but suffered a knee injury during spring football and missed the 2010 season. In 2009, Fotu played in 13 games — one start — and had 23 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks.
