UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Penn State redshirt freshman middle linebacker Michael Zordich has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol following an incident at 3:25 a.m. Sunday.
Mr. Zordich, 19, was stopped on Bigler Road after university police noticed him driving without his headlights on.
Penn State Police Deputy Director Tyrone Parham said this morning that Mr. Zordich's blood-alcohol content was 0.19. The limit for a minor is 0.02.
Mr. Parham said Mr. Zordich would be mailed a summons -- perhaps as early as today -- by Magisterial District Judge Jonathan D. Grine. No court date has been set.
Mr. Zordich, 6 feet 1 and 225 pounds, was listed third at middle linebacker on the depth chart released Monday by the school. His father, Mike, was an All-American strong safety at Penn State who later played 12 seasons in the NFL.
Mr. Zordich's status for Penn State's non-conference opener tomorrow against Akron remains up in the air.
"I don't know anything at this point," Penn State spokesman Jeff Nelson said.
