Former Mississippi State Bulldogs quarterback Dak Prescott was reportedly arrested in Starkville, Mississippi, on the morning of March 12 for driving under the influence, according to the Clarion-Ledger's Michael Bonner and Sarah Fowler.

Neither Prescott nor his representatives have commented on the matter, per Bonner and Fowler, but Chief Frank Nichols of the Starkville police confirmed Prescott was pulled over while driving a white 2016 Cadillac Escalade.

According to WREG News Channel 3's Eryn Taylor and the Associated Press, police records show Prescott took one breathalyzer test at 1:13 a.m. CST and another at 1:47 a.m. The first resulted in an "invalid sample," whereas the second rendered an "insufficient sample," per the report.

"I want to make a statement, and first take complete responsibility for my actions," Prescott told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network on Sunday. "I'm very remorseful for my misjudgment. I want to apologize to my true supporters, my family, Mississippi State University, the NFL and the kids who look up to me. I won't ask for forgiveness; however, I'll show the true man I am and exhibit my character through my actions and behavior going forward."

Prescott has been preparing for the 2016 NFL draft, which is slated to begin April 28 in Chicago, and as Bleacher Report's Matt Miller noted, the arrest came at an inopportune time:

Taking it a step further, CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco explained that Prescott will likely need to discuss the events that led to his arrest when he interviews with teams over the next six weeks: 

Although Prescott's stock was trending in a positive direction after he ran a 4.79-second 40-yard dash and recorded the fifth-best broad jump (nine feet, eight inches) of any quarterback at this year's NFL Scouting Combine, legal trouble could give pause to prospective employers when they're on the clock.
