FYI: Boone on recent DUI arrests

I spoke with athletics director Pete Boone this morning about the arrests on DUI-related charges for three Ole Miss athletes in less than a month.

“Yes, it is a concern. As far as there being three in a short time, I think it’s coincidence, but one is a concern,” Boone said.

Baseball player Drew Pomeranz was arrested Aug. 23, football player Fon Ingram on Sept. 14 and baseball player Tim Ferguson Thursday. Ingram was actually charged with DUI. Pomeranz and Ferguson refused to submit to breath tests.

Boone said he is confident in the way things are handled within the athletics department for situations like this.

There will be more on Boone’s assessment in Sunday’s print edition.
