Finally, some news involving Oregon this offseason that has nothing to do with Willie Lyles. Though this isn't exactly good news, either, as backup quarterback Dustin Haines was arrested early Saturday morning and has since been suspended. Apparently Haines was partying a little too loudly, and when the police showed up Haines got a bit out of hand.
Police say Haines became hostile and scuffled with officers. He was charged with with excessive noise, interfering with a police officer and resisting arrest.
Former UO running back Brandon Thurston also was cited for noise, a police spokeswoman said.
The spokeswoman said Haines was taken to Lane County jail. He posted bail and was released on Saturday.
Chip Kelly has suspended Haines indefinitely.
Haines appeared in four games as a sophomore for Oregon last season, carrying the ball twice, making one catch and never throwing a pass. Such is Oregon's offense where quarterbacks have more carries and receptions than passes.
