Report: Kai Locksley arrested in El Paso

EL PASO — UTEP quarterback Kai Locksley, son of current Maryland and former New Mexico head football coach Mike Locksley, was arrested Saturday on charges of driving while intoxicated, possession of marijuana under 2 ounces, terroristic threat and unlawful carrying of a weapon, the El Paso Times reported.

The newspaper reported that Miners coach Dana Dimel said Kai Locksley has been suspended from the team. Per El Paso County Jail records, he was released Saturday afternoon after posting bonds totaling $2,900, jail records show.

The 6-foot-4, 212-pound Locksley played nine games, starting eight, in 2018 for the 1-11 Miners.

Mike Locksley is in his first year as coach at Maryland after a successful stint as Alabama offensive coordinator. He posted a 2-26 record in two-plus tumultuous years at UNM.
