Ole Miss guard Stefan Moody was arrested on charges of driving under the influence early Saturday morning in Lafayette (Mississippi) County.

Riley Blevins of the Clarion-Ledger reported the news. Rebels coach Andy Kennedy told Parrish Alford of Inside Ole Miss Sports he is aware of the incident but did not have any further comment while he learned the facts of the case.

If convicted, this would be Moody's first DUI offense. A first offense carries a jail sentence of up to 48 hours, a fine of up to $1,000 and a three-month license suspension.

The 5'10" Moody, a Florida Atlantic transfer, averaged 16.6 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game last season. He in many ways took over the Marshall Henderson role, creating a ton of his shots off the dribble when the offense stalled out.

The DUI is the second piece of bad news for Moody this summer, as he suffered a leg fracture last month and underwent surgery. Ole Miss said at the time he was expected to miss between two and three months.
