Sean Martin Cited By Corvallis Police

Oregon St. junior corner back Sean Martin was cited and released by Corvallis police early Sunday morning for driving under the influence of intoxicants and subsequently allegedly attempting to elude police officers.

Corvallis Police Department officers reported noticing Martin it the 2600 block of Fillmore Avenue, and he sped off in a Dodge Charger. The vehicle was located a few blocks away at 28th street, and Martin was identified as the driver.

Oregon St. football coach Mike Riley did not immediately announce what sanctions would be taken against Martin, pending legal proceedings. Possibilities would seem to range from a game suspension up to being dismissed from the team, depending on further findings once they emerge.

Martin missed most of the 2011 season with injuries, but did play in 3 games, recording 9 tackles,1 for a loss, and also forced a fumble and recovered one.

Updated:

Riley on Monday suspended Martin indefinitely, and said he must earn his way back onto the team in order to work out with his teammates. Riley did not elaborate on exactly how Martin will do that.

Oregon St.'s code of conduct for first time violations of this sort (Martin has not been in trouble previously) calls for a one game suspension as well, should he work his way back onto the team.
