TCU starting quarterback Casey Pachall of Brownwood was arrested during October 2012 on DWI charges.


TCU quarterback Casey Pachall -- who previously played for Brownwood High -- has been suspended indefinitely after he was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated

Coach Gary Patterson announced the suspension Thursday morning, hours after police said Pachall was pulled over for running a stop sign near TCU's Fort Worth campus.

Fort Worth police Sgt. Pedro Criado said Pachall's blood-alcohol level was above the legal limit, but wouldn't provide specifics. A jail official in nearby Mansfield said Pachall was being held on $1,000 bond. There was no information on an attorney.

In February, Pachall admitted to police that he smoked marijuana and failed a drug test two weeks before his roommate was arrested in a sting operation.
