Cowboys, ex-Mississippi State QB Dak Prescott acquitted of DUI

STARKVILLE, Miss. -- WTVA-TV in Mississippi reports that a municipal court has cleared former Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott on charges of speeding and drunk driving.

Prescott, a fourth-round draft pick of the Dallas Cowboys, appeared in Starkville Municipal Court on Wednesday to answer the charges and was found not guilty.

Prescott was accused of driving 41 mph in a 25 mph zone and was charged with first-offense driving under the influence, a misdemeanor. Police said Prescott admitted drinking at least one beer that night.

Police records show that one breathalyzer test was an "invalid sample" and a second was an "insufficient sample."

Prescott, who is 6-foot-2, 226 pounds, helped Mississippi State win a combined 19 games in his junior and senior seasons.

The Cowboys begin training camp this week.
