Ole Miss QB Mackey arrested
Redshirt junior is in competition for starting position
OXFORD, Miss. -- Mississippi quarterback Randall Mackey has been arrested for disorderly conduct.
Records at the Lafayette County Detention Center show Mackey was arrested by the Oxford Police Department at 12:26 a.m. Tuesday morning and charged with disorderly failure to comply. He was released on a cash bond at about 9 a.m.
The 5-foot-11, 195-pound junior is fighting for the starting job along with sophomore Barry Brunetti and junior Zack Stoudt. Mackey redshirted last season with the Rebels after being named an All-American at East Mississippi Community College in 2009, throwing for 3,122 yards and 32 touchdowns during his sophomore season.
Coach Houston Nutt, who is expected to address the issue again after Tuesday's practice, said in a statement that Ole Miss officials are currently gathering information on the incident.
"Once we have all the facts, we will determine the appropriate course of action," Nutt said.
