UK football player charged with DUI

A UK football player is charged with drunken driving after being arrested Sunday morning.

Matt Roark, a junior wide receiver, was suspended for one game for violating team rules, UK spokesman Tony Neely said.

Roark was arrested at 5:51 a.m. Sunday, according to the police report. Roark said he “drank a couple of shots,” according to the report.

The report says Roark struck a parked car on Wood Valley Court, located in the Lansdowne area. No one was injured in the accident. Both cars sustained “heavy damage.”

Roark is also charged with failure to maintain insurance, according to the report.

Roark registered a .192 blood alcohol level, had “slurred speech” and was “swaying with a staggered walk,” the report said.

Roark was released 11:06 a.m. Sunday. He is scheduled to appear in Fayette County District Court Thursday at 1 p.m. for his arraignment.

Roark has 11 catches for 163 yards on the season and has played a significant role on special teams coverage.
