AUSTIN, Texas, April 7 (UPI) -- University of Texas wide receiver Kendall Sanders was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated, Brazos County sheriff's records indicate.

The 18-year-old freshman was booked by Texas A&M police 5:10 a.m. local time Saturday, the Austin (Texas) American-Statesman reported Saturday.

He was released on $3,000 bond, records show.

UT head football Coach Mack Brown issued a statement Sunday saying the school is "disappointed any time one of our players is accused of wrongdoing."

"We take a strong stance against drinking and driving and will continue to monitor this situation to get more details. Following the completion of the legal process, we will do what's best for the University, Kendall and the team. One thing we have great pride in about our program is our family atmosphere and there also will be discipline handled within our family," he added.

Sanders is the second UT wide receiver to be arrested in the last month, the San Antonio Express-News reported.

Sophomore Cayleb Jones was suspended from the team March 12 after he was charged with aggravated assault for allegedly punching a UT men's tennis player over a former girlfriend.
