Mike Zordich Jr. Charged With DUI

This. This is not good.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Penn State redshirt freshman middle linebacker Michael Zordich has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol following an incident at 3:25 a.m. Sunday.

Mr. Zordich, 19, was stopped on Bigler Road after university police noticed him driving without his headlights on.

Penn State Police Deputy Director Tyrone Parham said this morning that Mr. Zordich's blood-alcohol content was 0.19. The limit for a minor is 0.02.

Man he blew that test out of the water. Once again it baffles me why any Penn State student would be caught drinking and driving. Where in the Hell were you that you couldn't walk home?

So it's off to the doghouse for Mr. Zordich. The fact that this happened during a game week has to make Paterno even more furious. This probably has little bearing on the defense since Penn State is plenty loaded at linebacker. But this is a huge blow for Zordich's career. With three cupcakes on the schedule to start the season he was probably going to get a good chance to show the coaches what he can do and give them something to think about next spring when they have to replace Lee, Hull, and probably Bowman. Now this puts him on the bottom of the list as guys like Yancich and Stupar will get to see the field.
