Kevin Olsen, University of Miami Quarterback, Arrested on DUI Charge

University of Miami quarterback Kevin Olsen was arrested on charges of DUI and possession of a stolen or fake driver's license early Monday, police said.

Olsen, 19, was booked into the Miami-Dade jail shortly after 4 a.m., records showed. He was being held on $6,000 bond and it was unknown whether he has an attorney.

Team officials said Olsen was suspended after the arrest.

According to a South Miami Police arrest report, officers were investigating a battery when they encountered Olsen, who was driving a 2014 Dodge Challenger.

An officer noticed Olsen had blood shot watery eyes, an odor of alcohol on his breath and slurred speech, the report said.

Olsen didn't perform well on field sobriety tests and "exhibited severe signs of impairment due to the consumption of an unknown alcoholic beverage," the report said.

While searching Olsen, officers found he had several identifications, including two from Maryland, one from North Carolina, one from Florida and one from New Jersey. All of the licenses had Olsen's name except the Florida one, which had the name of senior Hurricanes fullback Ronald Regula, the report said.

Olsen, a redshirt freshman from Wayne, N.J., was suspended for the Hurricanes' season opener against Louisville, a 31-13 loss, after a positive drug test.

Last year, Olsen was suspended for the Russell Athletic Bowl for violating team rules, according to the Miami Herald.
