University of Pittsburgh OL Alex Bookser Arrested After Police Chase

Pittsburgh Post Gazette

Offensive lineman Alexander Bookser from the University of Pittsburgh was arrested Sunday morning after a police chase and car crash that ended with Bookser being taken from his car at gun point.

Surveillance footage captured some of the incident: 

Bookser, a redshirt junior, played as a freshman at right tackle until his switch to right guard last season where he started all 13 games.

Pitt head coach Pat Narduzzi released the following statement:

Bookser has a long list of charges that include “driving under the influence, careless driving, reckless driving, failure to drive at a safe speed, accidents involving damage to unattended vehicles, and operation of a vehicle without an official certificate.

The team has yet to release a statement on the consequences of the arrest.

Our Take

Because this is not his first offense, I don’t see how the University of Pittsburgh’s football program can allow Bookser to remain on the team.
