Maryland RB arrested early Friday morning on seven different charges
Want to play on Saturdays? You have to be good. And, not just on the field. But, off the field as well.
No matter what school a student-athlete attends, they have to do a lot of things right if they want to continue to play week in and week out. At Maryland, it’s no different.
News broke that Maryland running back Tayon Fleet-Davis was arrested early Friday morning on seven different charges — some being driving-related:

The charges are as follows, according to Jeff Ermann of 247Sports:
- Driving a vehicle while impaired by a controlled dangerous substance.
- Reckless driving a vehicle in wanton and willful disregard for safety of persons and property.
- Negligent driving vehicle in careless and imprudent [manner], endangering proper, life and person.
- Failure of individual driving on highway to display license to uniformed police on demand.
According to state records, no accident took place. After Maryland’s game Saturday against Nebraska, Terrapins coach Mike Locksley said Fleet-Davis was held out of the game because of “a non-football reason.”
So far this season, Fleet-Davis has rushed for 265 yards and 2 TDs while catching 15 passes for 181 yards and another 2 scores through the air.
