STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Penn State backup receiver James
McDonald is off the football team after police charged him with drunken driving.

A one-sentence statement Tuesday from the athletic department said the fifth-year senior would not be invited back to the Nittany Lions this fall. The statement did not elaborate.

State College police on Monday filed two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence against McDonald after he was pulled over July 9 for an expired registration.

The 22-year-old from Washington, D.C., also faces a violation of driving a car with an expired registration. A preliminary hearing was scheduled for Aug. 19.

McDonald has played sparingly at Penn State, finishing last season with five catches for 72 yards.
