Mizzou suspends Pinkel 1 game after DWI arrest

Missouri has suspended coach Gary Pinkel for Saturday's game and frozen his salary for a year following his overnight arrest on suspicion of drunk driving.
Athletic director Mike Alden announced the disciplinary measures
on Thursday afternoon. They include a total of some $300,000 in
penalties, including a donation to a campus alcohol-awareness
program, and 50 hours of community service.
He will miss Saturday's home game between Missouri (5-5) and
Texas Tech.
Boone County Sheriff's Office records show that deputies pulled
Pinkel over in Columbia and jailed him Wednesday night. He was
released from jail after posting a $500 bond. A county prosecutor
said that no decision had been made about filing formal criminal
charges.
