The Missouri Tigers’ football program suspended defensive star Chad Bailey after an early-morning Sunday arrest.
A seemingly intoxicated Bailey was pulled over for a lane violation while driving with a suspended license and performed “poorly” during a field sobriety test, first reported by The St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Coach Eli Drinkwitz released a statement on Bailey’s arrest hours later, announcing the 23-year-old linebacker’s indefinite suspension. According to the school’s conduct guidelines, players receive a one-week-minimum suspension for arrests.
Bailey was one of the Tigers’ captains in the 2022 season.
