According to the police report displayed on the website, Pachall didn’t clearly stop at a stop sign and proceeded to run over the curb, pulling out in front of the officer. The arrest was made around 12:50 in the morning after the cop’s emergency lights went on and Pachall pulled over.

The incident occured in Fort Worth, Texas, just days before TCU hosts their first conference game in the Big 12 against Iowa State.

The Horned Frogs were already facing the possibility of being without their starting running back, Matthew Tucker, who’s listed as questionable. It puts another dent into the depth of that position when they already lost Waymon James earlier this season. Now they will likely not have their starting quarterback.

This isn’t the first problems off the field for Pachall. According to Rotoworld, “he had previously failed a school drug test for marijuana” and has “used cocaine and ecstasy at least once in the past.”

More information will be provided as the situation evolves. Kickoff of the game between TCU and Iowa State is at 2:30 p.m. CT this Saturday.
