Louisiana Tech could have had several transfers come in this year, but head coach Skip Holtz decided to stick it out with Ryan Higgins. Well Higgins let him down. Today Higgins was arrested for DWI, according to the News Star.
Louisiana Tech starting quarterback Ryan Higgins was arrested early Friday in Ruston, according to the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Higgins, a senior, was charged with DWI and speeding (11 to 20 miles per hour over) just a few days before Tech starts fall camp. Ruston Police Department arrested Higgins at 3:19 a.m. on West Alabama Avenue near campus. He was booked at 5:08 a.m. and has a bond amount of $1,750 ($1,500 for DWI, $250 for speeding).
Higgins was stopped for speeding at the intersection of West Alabama Avenue and Western street, about a half a mile from Tech’s football stadium, traveling 47 miles per hour in a 35 miles per hour zone, according to an affidavit of probable cause.
The officer had reason to believe Higgins was intoxicated, according to the report, and Higgins performed poorly on a standardized field sobriety test and had a blood alcohol content of .119.
