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.
