Tennessee safety won't miss playing time

Tennessee safety Darren Myles Jr. won't miss playing time as punishment for his arrest on public intoxication, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest charges.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. | Tennessee safety Darren Myles Jr. won't miss playing time as punishment for his arrest on public intoxication, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest charges.

A team spokesman says coach Derek Dooley will handle Myles' punishment internally within the Volunteers' system and reiterated his disappointment in Myles after the freshman performed so well during the team's spring practice period.

Knoxville police arrested Myles early April 18 after bouncers removed him from a restaurant and nightclub for being disorderly. Officers say they observed him riding on the hood of a vehicle in the parking lot.

Myles had a key interception in Tennessee's spring game the day before and was presented with the Vols' Fourth Quarter Award by coaches for dedication to the program.
