KNOXVILLE — Tennessee sophomore tight end Brendan Downs was arrested for underage consumption of alcohol and public intoxication outside a Knoxville bar early Sunday, police said.
Police say Downs, a 19-year-old native of Bristol, was removed from the Whiskey Dix nightclub at 1912 Cumberland Ave. by a manager. Once outside, Downs "created a disturbance by becoming loud and using profane language." A Knoxville police officer who was working an extra job in the bar's parking lot placed Downs under arrest about 1 a.m., according to Knoxville Police Department Sgt. R. Eastridge.
"We are aware of the situation and are gathering facts," Tennessee spokesperson Jimmy Stanton said.
