Diamond Taylor Of SUI Basketball Gets Arrested For DUI

Diamond Taylor, a guard with the Southern Illinois University basketball team was arrested for DUI on September 22, 2012. Apparently, head coach Barry Hinson has already suspended Taylor indefinitely and stated that he is “extremely disappointed in Diamond“. Taylor has been a rising star with the Salukis, playing 27 games and making 9 starts with the team last year. Hinson also said that he met with the Diamond Taylor early Monday morning and “issued a challenge to him to become a first-class student and resident of Carbondale. How he responds will determine his status going forward“.

This isn’t the first time Diamond Taylor has been in trouble though. In September of 2009, Taylor was arrested and charged with burglary as well as underage drinking at the University of Wisconsin. Taylor and another basketball player both admitted to sneaking into unlocked dorm rooms, stealing ipods, a cell phone and around $400 in cash. Taylor withdrew from the school before they could place him on any disciplinary action. It is still unclear how long Taylor will be placed on suspension and what course the University may choose to take in regard to his DUI charge.
