A linebacker for Brigham Young University's football team was arrested Sunday on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Court documents state Chaz Ah You, 21, was traveling 75 mph in a 35 mph zone along Red Hawk Road and Pony Express Parkway in Eagle Mountain. He was also reportedly following close behind other vehicles.

During a traffic stop, Ah You was taken into custody because of his "reckless driving pattern."

Due to the weather, the deputy decided to conducted the field sobriety test at the Utah County Jail.

While searching his vehicle, the deputy found a THC vape pen and two containers of alcohol: one was empty and the other had a "consumable amount," court documents state.

Ah You was arrested for a DUI, reckless driving, speeding, improper lane change and drinking in or about a vehicle.

The BYU linebacker was nationally ranked in the Scout Top 300, according to his athletic profile on BYUcougars.com.

Ah You ranked as the No. 1 safety and No. 2 overall recruit in Utah. He played at Westlake High School until his senior year, then transferred to Timpview High School.

BYU is owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Students agree to adhere to a strict honor code that bans consuming alcohol.

Last June, BYU football player Neil Pau’u was arrested for a DUI in Provo.
