Texas Lineman Starts Game, Wins, Collects DWI

All in a day’s work for Texas Longhorn defender LaMarr Houston. Houston began the day Texas’ starting defensive tackle, recording two tackles for loss as Texas beat smack talking Florida Atlantic 52-10. He ended it with a two car collision and a DWI sure to embarrass coach Mack Brown.

Austin police Lt. Max Johnson said Houston was involved in a two-car accident where there were no injuries. The accident occurred about 3:15 a.m. at the intersection of 11th Street and Interstate 35, Johnson said.

Houston remained in Travis County Jail late Sunday morning under bonds totaling $3,000.

And I thought I had a long day watching a full Saturday of college football. Houston snapped an impressive yearlong streak of zero arrests for the Texas football program. Coach Mack Brown came under some heat last offseason when a string of player arrests dirtied Texas’ clean-cut image. To Texas’ credit, at least they’re not Iowa.
