Stanford linebacker Shayne Skov was booked for driving under the influence early in the morning on Sunday Jan. 29, according to a published report.
Billy Gallagher of The Stanford Daily first reported the arrest.
We have an expected standard of excellence and conduct for our football players and Shayne failed to adhere to those standards, head football coach David Shaw said Monday in a statement to The Daily through Jim Young, senior assistant athletic director of communications and media relations.
Skov led the Cardinal in tackles in 2010, including a 12 tackle, three-sack performance against Virginia Tech in the Orange Bowl.
Unfortunately, he suffered a season-ending knee injury in Stanford's third game of the 2011 season against Arizona.
Whether or not this incident will effect his status with the team is unclear.
If it does not, Skov is expected to be the anchor of the Cardinal's defense in 2012.
