A bulletin from the Good News Bureau of QuackTown: Oregon defensive lineman Isaac Remington is back after charges stemming from an Oct. 12 arrest were dropped, according to the Register Guard.
Remington, 23, was pulled over in the early morning on Oct. 12, on suspicion of driving under the influence of intoxicants. The star defensive lineman’s BAC was .06 — .02 under the state of Oregon’s legal limit — but was arrested nonetheless.
He was then suspended indefinitely by the team pending charges.
On Tuesday, however, Eugene city prosecutors decided not to formally file charges against Remington. They cited an inability to prove “beyond a reasonable doubt” that Remington was indeed intoxicated given his legal BAC, city prosecutor Dan Barovic told the Register Guard.
The lack of charges were enough for the Ducks to immediately lift Remington’s suspension, and the senior will be back for Saturday’s Homecoming game against Colorado.
All this is good news for the Ducks, who undoubtedly will be glad to have Remington back — and in game form — for USC on Nov. 3.
