AUBURN, Ala. (AL.com) — Gus Malzahn Statement on Sean White
“Sean White is no longer a part of our football program at Auburn. He has made poor decisions that are not in the best interest of our program, and more importantly, himself. We appreciate his time at Auburn and wish him nothing but the best.”
Auburn backup quarterback Sean White, who was arrested early Sunday morning for public intoxication, has been dismissed from the team, a source told AL.com.
The 21-year old White, who had just served a two-game suspension for undisclosed reasons, was arrested by Auburn police at 2:45 a.m. on Sunday on the 100 block of N Ross St. in Auburn, according to Auburn police assistant chief William Mathews.
The arrest report for White lists 141 N Ross St., the address of Auburn's police department, as the location of his arrest. The report notes White's condition as drunk and that the arrest was "on view" as opposed to in response to a call or for a warrant.
White was admitted into Lee County jail at 3:28 a.m., where he was held on $500 bond, according to jail records. Lee county sheriff Jay Jones said White was released Sunday morning on his own recognizance.
The redshirt junior started 16 games for the Tigers between 2015 and 2016, including 10 last season, and was in the mix for Auburn's starting quarterback job this year until ultimately losing out to Stidham during the Tigers' preseason camp.
