Boston College linebacker Dominick LeGrande was arrested on Sunday and charged with driving under the influence. According to police reports, the 6-foot-2 inch 219 pound junior came out of a bar in Staten Island, N.Y. (where he lives) got into what was later identified as his mother's car and was tagged by police who were watching the bar which has been a hangout for young drinkers. LeGrande failed a Breathalyzer test and was arrested.

BC officials said today that they were "investigating the report'' and that any action taken by the school was pending. LeGrande was still at home because BC does not resume classes until next week.

Former Boston College quarterback Justin Tuggle, who left the team in the middle of last season has enrolled at Blinn (Tx) Jr. College

"The fact that I could go somewhere for a year and then get back to a Division I school appealed to me, but also that I could excel on and off the field. Blinn has a good track record, and the coaching staff really sold me on the school," Tuggle said in a release issued by Blinn.

Tuggle redshirted last season at BC and was the Eagles' starting QB for three games last season before freshman Dave Shinskie moved into the starting spot for the remainder of the season.
