Gonzaga University men's basketball coach Mark Few is facing a DUI charge after being pulled over Monday night, according to The Spokesman-Review.
Few was pulled over in Dalton Gardens, Idaho, after police received a report a vehicle was speeding and driving erratically. A police report states Few showed "several signs of intoxication." Few declined to take part in field sobriety tests, but reportedly blew a .119 and .120 when tested. The legal limit for alcohol is .08.
Few released a statement after news broke of his pending charge, apologizing for his actions and pledging to never allow alcohol to impair his driving again.
