Boise State football player arrested for DUI, marking second team arrest in two weeks

Michael Young, 21, a Boise State defensive back, was arrested early Sunday and charged with driving under the influence, according to Ada County Jail arrest records.

Young’s arrest comes on the heels of defensive lineman David Moa’s misdemeanor arrest on a charge of disturbing the peace on Sept. 16. Moa sat out the first quarter of Friday night’s loss to Virginia.

Young was booked into the Ada County Jail shortly after 3:30 a.m. Sunday. He faces a misdemeanor charge of DUI.

Officials told the Statesman that Young’s arrest “will be handled appropriately and internally.”

Young, a junior, joined the team in January as a transfer from Dodge City (Kan.) Community College. He has played in the Broncos’ last three games as a backup cornerback, making four tackles. He was not allowed to play in the season opener Sept. 2 by coach Bryan Harsin. Young was not in pads, and Harsin said after the game that he was not hurt.

As of 9 a.m. Sunday, Young was no longer in jail. Arrest records indicate that he’s scheduled to appear for arraignment on Monday.
