JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Police say Mississippi State running back Anthony Dixon was arrested over the weekend and charged with driving under the influence.
An arrest report from the Starkville Police Department says officers found Dixon intoxicated late Saturday night with two empty champagne bottles on the floor of his car.
Mississippi State spokesman Joe Galbraith says coach Dan Mullen is still trying to gather facts before deciding on disciplinary action and won't comment yet.
The 21-year-old from Terry was recently named preseason second-team All-Southeastern Conference and is the Bulldogs' best returning offensive player.
He rushed for 869 yards and seven touchdowns to bring his career
totals to 2,603 yards and a Mississippi State record 30 touchdowns.
It's unclear if he has an attorney.
