Casey Pachall Withdraws From TCU After DUI Arrest

Casey Pachall, quarterback for Texas Christian University, has officially withdrawn from classes and will enter a treatment facility for drug and alcohol abuse. Pachall was arrested on October 4, 2012 for DUI and will miss the rest of the 2012 college football season. Head coach Gary Patterson said, “We want to make sure we can make this turn into a positive,¬†Casey’s parents, Casey and I, we all agreed that there was only one way to change the path he was on — to step away from it.” According to police reports, Casey Pachall had a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of .15%, almost double the legal limit of .08%.

Pachall has played a vital role in the team’s success, which was felt recently with a loss against Iowa State, 37-23. In February of 2012, Pachall was part of a campus drug bust that resulted in the arrest of 17 TCU students including his then roommate and teammate Tanner Brock. Pachall was not charged or arrested in the bust however. Casey Pachall has also admitted to using cocaine and ecstasy, although he claims he only tried the drugs once and has not used since. Should Pachall return to play football for TCU in 2013, he will have only one year of eligibility remaining as a fifth year senior.
