Projected Hokies starting WR Luckett suspended after DUI arrest

BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Virginia Tech suspended receiver Zach Luckett indefinitely Monday after being arrested for the second time Sunday for drunken driving.

Coach Frank Beamer had no further comment beyond announcing the suspension of the 6-foot-3, 212-pound redshirt sophomore.

Luckett, 20, was arrested Sunday and charged with driving under the influence and operating with a revoked license. It is his second time he has been charged with drunken driving.

Luckett's blood alchol level was .16, twice the legal limit in Virginia, a police spokesman said.

Luckett was expected to start this season after playing all 14 games last season. He caught two passes for 15 yards and made 15 tackles on special teams.

He was one of only two current receivers at Virginia Tech who has caught a pass in his college career.

The Hokies are ranked 17th in The Associated Press preseason poll.
