Auburn QB Zeke Pike arrested
Auburn freshman quarterback Zeke Pike was arrested for public intoxication in Lee County on Saturday night and later released on a $300 bond, according to multiple reports.
Pike, 19, enrolled at Auburn in January and participated in spring practice; on the depth chart, he is behind sophomore Kiehl Frazier and redshirt junior Clint Moseley. During Auburn's spring A-Day game, the 6-foot-6, 229-pound Pike completed 4 of 8 passes for 42 yards.
Pike, who was a three-star quarterback prospect out of Dixie Heights High School in Edgewood, Ky., passed for 1,964 yards and rushed for 728 yards during what was a tumultuous senior year.
He was suspended for Dixie Heights' 2011 season opener for reportedly being ejected in a playoff game his junior year and also was suspended for his team's Nov. 4 playoff game for undisclosed reasons.
Pike also drew negative attention for his ongoing Twitter feuds with Alabama fans during the summer before his senior year.
According to ESPN's recruiting rankings, Pike was rated the No. 38 quarterback in the Class of 2012. As a junior, he passed for 2,144 yards and 17 touchdowns and rushed for 947 yards and 17 more scores.
