"You won't be reading about any of our players getting arrested in the paper."-SLY

I am not saying Ole Miss has not had its fair share of run ins with the law over the past few years, but Croom set him self up when he made the above comment.

(Clarion Ledger)STARKVILLE — Mississippi State backup quarterback Josh Riddell is suspended indefinitely after his early Sunday morning arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol.

Riddell, 21, was arrested at 1:41 a.m Sunday on U.S. Highway 182 north of campus with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.14, according to Starkville Police Department records. A copy of the ticket issued to Riddell showed he was driving a Chevrolet Tahoe with an Alabama license plate.

He was also cited with a seat belt violation. Starkville Police Chief David Lindley would not comment this afternoon on the details of Riddell’s arrest.

Speaking to reporters prior to his team’s 4 p.m. practice, MSU coach Sylvester Croom said Riddell would still practice with the team. Riddell walked to the practice field as Croom spoke, but Riddell was not made available for interviews.
