Louisville's Ashley arrested for second DUI

Louisville cornerback Darius Ashley was arrested on a drunken driving charge for the second time since December after he rear-ended a police car this past weekend.

According to the Louisville Courier-Journal, Ashley had a blood-alcohol level of 0.186, more than twice the legal limit. He hit the car at a stoplight early Saturday morning and told police his phone had distracted him. A team spokesman told the newspaper that coach Charlie Strong is aware of the incident but declined comment.

Ashley pleaded guilty to DUI in April following his arrest in December, when he was found unconscious at a drive-through with his car running. His blood alcohol level at the time was 0.192. Even though he missed spring practice, Ashley was considered to be one of the favorites to win a starting cornerback job this season.
