Stetson Bennett IV Arrested in Dallas
Stetson Bennett IV, who just capped off one of the greatest underdog stories in college football history with a second straight College Football Playoff National Championship victory, has been arrested for public intoxication in Dallas, Tx. after he was found wandering the streets of Old East Dallas around 6 a.m. central time on Sunday.
Police received a call that a man was wandering about the area banging on doors and found Bennett intoxicated on Tribeca Way. The police did not say whether or not Bennett himself was the one causing the commotion.
Bennett was arrested at that time and taken to a local detention center, where he was released around 11 a.m. the same morning.
This is not the first time since winning his second national championship that Bennett has put himself in an unfavorable public light. He received lots of criticism for being on his phone for a large portion of the Bulldogs' national championship parade, and wasn't exactly sincere in his apology to the fans that felt scorn.
Bennett has been in the Dallas-Forth Worth area recently to work out and get ready for the NFL Draft.
Bennett is 25 years old and of below average athletic talent compared to most quarterbacks going out for the draft. Bennett also has opted out of the Senior Bowl, an opportunity to showcase his skills in front of a plethora of pro scouts and work with NFL assistant coaches. Public embarrassments like this will not do anything to help his already low draft stock.
