Defensive lineman Micah Roane has been removed from the Gophers football team in the wake of a DWI arrest.
Roane, a walk-on from Shakopee, was arrested early Sunday morning by University of Minnesota police for driving while intoxicated, according to the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office. He was pulled over on his moped at 2:29 a.m. for driving without a headlamp and failure to make a complete stop near the U’s campus.
His Breathalyzer test at 3:48 a.m. read 0.12, which is above the legal limit of 0.08. He was booked in Hennepin County jail at 4:31 a.m. and released a few hours later.
The 19-year-old has a court appearance scheduled for the misdemeanor offense on Nov. 1.
Roane was a redshirt freshman and had not appeared in a game for Minnesota. At Chaska High School, he was named to the Associated Press all-state first team in 2017.
In February, the Gophers dismissed walk-on freshman special teams player Max Janes after the Arden Hills native was arrested for allegedly assaulting a police officer. He played in 13 games in 2018.
