Saturday morning Raulston was arrested by the Knox county sheriff's department for driving while impaired; he later posted a $1000 bond and was released. He is scheduled to appear in Knox county general sessions court on Monday.
Following Derek Dooley from Louisina Tech, Doak Raulston had aspirations to play for the Vols as a walk-on, and was recruited heavily by Dooley. Listed on the roster as back-up QB, it's not specified whether or not he's fourth or fifth behind Simms, and or Nash.
Regardless, Dooley has been quick to discipline rule-breaking players this season, attempting to set an example and send a message to current and future Vols. With the limited number of scholarships available I would not be surprised to see Dooley dismiss Raulston should evidence prove detrimental for the Texas 20 year old.
As a private school QB Raulston threw over 3026yds and rushed for 840yds his senior year, he was a redshirt freshman while at Louisiana Tech. No comment has been made by the university or coach Dooley at this time.
As Tennessee's QB depth is already shallow enough as it is, even a fourth or fifth string QB could present serious problems should Bray become injured with Kentucky still on the schedule. Simms is healthy on paper, but still wearing a knee brace, Nash has yet to demostrate any skill-sets, so if any scenario takes place where injuries come into play, a bowl birth, much less a win becomes a very distant challenge.
