Oregon defensive tackle Austin Maloata has been dismissed from the team after a car crash early on Sunday morning led to an arrest on three charges.

Per the Daily Emerald, Maloata was arrested on charges of DUI, reckless driving and possession of methamphetamine.

Maloata, 19, was booked at 5:09 a.m. following Oregon’s 52-27 loss to Stanford Saturday. Maloata was driving at 1:48 a.m. when he ran a red light at the intersection of East Broadway and Hilyard Street and collided with another vehicle. Officers found methamphetamine in Maloata’s car and determined he was driving under the influence of intoxicants.

That seems like an incredibly dumb decision to be in possession of meth and of course to be drinking while driving. The meth charge is a felony while the other two are misdemeanors.

Maloata has 23 tackles in 2016. Three are for loss and he also has 1.5 sacks. He had 15 tackles combined in his first two seasons with the team.
