PULLMAN -- Pullman police arrested Dezmon Epps early Sunday morning for driving under the influence.
The rising senior and Sacramento native was pulled over at 800 NE Ruby Street at 1:23 a.m. Sunday. Second year Idaho head coach Paul Petrino released this statement to The Argonaut:
“I am aware of the situation involving Dezmon Epps and I am disappointed in his actions. I will review the matter and it will be handled swiftly and decisively. Our student-athletes will understand that there will be discipline in our program. They will learn the responsibility they have in representing themselves, the football program, and the University of Idaho in the right manner. We will hold our student-athlete’s accountable for their actions at all times as character and integrity will always be a priority in our program. We will learn just as many life lessons through our failures as we will through our successes.”
Epps was Idaho's top receiver in 2013. As a junior he hauled in 79 catches for 980 yards and four touchdowns. On the season Epps racked up 1,416 all-purpose yards.
The arrest came less than two days after the Vandals' Silver and Gold Game, marking the end of spring football.
