Penn State reserve linebacker Michael Zordich faces DUI charges after being stopped early Sunday in State College.
According to a report in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Penn State University police stopped Zordich for driving without his headlights on at 3:25 a.m. Sunday. The 19-year-old Zordich had a blood-alcohol level that measured .19, more than twice the state's legal limit of .08 and nearly 10 times the limit for a minor (.02).
Zordich, a redshirt freshman and the son of former Penn State All-American safety Mike Zordich, is listed as Penn State's third-string middle linebacker on the depth chart for Saturday's opener against Akron. Zordich's status for the Akron game is unknown, though it would be a major surprise if he played.
