Reports: Ducks' Kiko Alonso arrested
ESPN.com news services
Linebacker Kiko Alonso, suspended for the Ducks' 2010 season because of a DUI arrest, has been charged in Oregon with burglary, criminal mischief and criminal trespass after his arrest Sunday in Lane County, according to local reports.
The junior was the fourth Oregon player to be arrested in the span of a month early last year. As the Ducks were putting together an undefeated season that culminated in an appearance in the Tostitos BCS National Championship Game in January, Alonso's sophomore season went by the wayside.
Alonso's arrest for DUI came hours after coach Chip Kelly, in a news conference to address the slew of incidents, said he was implementing a tougher disciplinary policy as a result.
As a freshman reserve, Alonso had 16 tackles in 12 games, including one tackle for loss, and forced one fumble.
