PULLMAN – Washington State University starting quarterback Jayden de Laura was arrested for DUI on Saturday in Pullman.

The 19-year-old was allegedly spotted on College Hill running through a stop sign on Colorado Street and driving the wrong way on Thatuna Street, said Operations Commander Jake Opgenorth. De Laura was stopped at 2:13 a.m.

He failed a field sobriety test and refused to take a Breathalyzer, but otherwise followed law enforcement instructions.

"He was very cooperative," said Opgenorth.

De Laura was released from jail on his personal recognizance shortly after being arrested.

WSU has suspended de Laura from the football team indefinitely. Cougar players recently returned for the winter semester and physical conditioning.

He started as quarterback for WSU in all four games last season.
