Oregon St. defensive back and kick returner Malcolm Marable became the latest Beaver football player to be suspended indefinitely by football coach Mike Riley, after a weekend speeding ticket.
Marable, a red shirt sophomore to be who played in all 12 games last year, primarily on special teams, and has also participated in track, was cited Sunday morning at about 1 AM, after an Oregon St. Police trooper clocked Marable driving at about 104 mph on I-5 near milepost 226, which is near the Corvallis exit.
"Exceeding the speed limit 100+" carries a of $1,150. Additionally, Marable was warned for failure to carry proof of insurance and failure to carry registration. The 2005 gray Nissan Altima he was driving is not Marable's car, but is registered to a family member. Marable had a clean driving record prior to this event.
The suspension Riley issued is at least until the matter is resolved in the courts, and depending on the outcome, will be evaluated further at that time.
It was a bad Sunday morning for Oregon St. football players, as junior cornerback Sean Martin was also cited by Corvallis police for driving under the influence of intoxicants, and was subsequently suspended indefinitely by Riley as well.
