UCF suspends LB Willie Mitchell

ORLANDO, Fla. -- UCF linebacker Willie Mitchell has been suspended indefinitely following an arrest this month for driving under the influence.

Knights coach George O'Leary said Wednesday that Mitchell is suspended pending the outcome of a hearing in front of UCF's Office of Student Conduct. He missed UCF's game at Penn State on Sept. 14 and will also be out for Saturday's home game against No. 12 South Carolina.

Mitchell, a junior from Deltona, was arrested and charged with the first-degree misdemeanor Sept. 7 and has pleaded not guilty, according to court records.

Mitchell started the Knights' first two games and has eight tackles, including six solo.
