Wide Receiver Darren Carrington II Pleads No Contest To DUI
SALT LAKE CITY – A plea of no contest has been entered in Eugene Municipal Court by Darren Carrington II, who was sent to Utah in July after being dismissed by Oregon following a misdemeanor DUI charge.
To solve the legal issue, he went to court on Monday as he was summoned. According to a deal, his charges will be dismissed if he completes a one-year diversion program and pay the amount of $490 in fine as ordered by the judge.
Kyle Whittingham, the Utah coach, didn’t say much about the case. He said, “That’s something that he’s handling and getting things taken care of. I’m just concerned with how he behaves and acts while he’s in our program.”
On the 1st of July, he was taken into custody after he struck a pole at a McDonalds drive-through in Eugene. His name was eliminated from the list of the team less than two weeks later by New Oregon coach Willie Taggart.
In the 3 seasons playing with the Ducks, he made 112 catches with 15 touchdowns. This week, Carrington II has to practice for the game to get back in the field on Wednesday.
