Washington State quarterback arrested for alleged alcohol offense
Marshall Lobbestael was arrested Saturday for an alleged alcohol offense
PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State quarterback Marshall Lobbestael was suspended from the team over the weekend after having been arrested by Pullman police early Saturday morning.
Police said they found the 19-year-old sophomore showing signs of being under the influence of alcohol. They found him passed out in the parking lot of the police department around 1:30 in the morning.
Bill Stevens, Assistant Director for Media Relations at WSU said Lobbestael was suspended indefinitely from the football team until coach Paul Wulff can investigate the facts and determine what actions need to be taken, if any.
Lobbestael played in five games as a freshman for the Cougars last season. He was replaced after injuring his knee in WSU's game against Oregon State. He tore his ACL and MCL. Stevens said his recovery after having surgery is "right on schedule".
