Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was reportedly found not guilty Wednesday during his DUI trial, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. 

Prescott—who the Cowboys selected in the fourth round of this year’s draft—is now set to attend Dallas' training camp in Oxnard, California.

Michael Bonner and Sarah Fowler of the Clarion-Ledger reported on the initial arrest that occurred when police stopped the former Mississippi State quarterback for speeding and “arrested and charged” him with DUI. Prescott was eventually released on bond, and Bonner and Fowler noted “there are no blood alcohol content test results pertaining” to the arrest.

While Bonner and Fowler pointed out “it is not uncommon for police to issue a ticket without administering a blood-alcohol test,” the Associated Press (via ESPN.com) reported Prescott had two breathalyzer tests that were deemed inconclusive. The first one was apparently an “invalid sample,” and the second was an “insufficient sample."

Bonner tweeted “this seemed like a likely ending” without any conclusive tests when Prescott was found not guilty during Wednesday’s trial.

Before being drafted by the Cowboys, Prescott tallied collegiate career highs in passing yards (3,793) and touchdown tosses (29) in 2015. He also ran for 588 yards and 10 touchdowns in his second consecutive impressive year after he posted 3,449 passing yards, 986 rushing yards and 42 total touchdowns in 2014.
