Oregon St. kick returner and defensive back Malcolm Marable has had his day in court this week, for his 104 mile per hour excursion on I-5 near Albany on Feb. 19 at 1 in the morning.
Marable pleaded no contest, and was fined $1,150 and his drivers' license was suspended for 30 days according to Linn County Court records. Marable also received a warning for failure to provide proof of insurance and registration.
Oregon St. police said there was no suspicion of drug or alcohol use, and Marable had a clean driving record prior to being pulled over for excessive speed in a 2005 Nissan Altima that was registered to a member of his family.
Marable, a red-shirt sophomore to be in the fall, has been on indefinite suspension from the football team since the driving incident, but will now probably be reinstated in time for spring practice (missing practice won't serve anyone's best interest), though Marable can probably expect to miss a game this fall.
Sean Martin, another Oregon St. defensive back also on suspension for his driving infraction, a DUII following an attempting to elude an officer charge, will have his court date, in Benton County, on April 6, 2 days after the start of spring practice.
Don't expect to see Martin on the field in the first week's sessions.
