TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Preston Parker's troubled football
career at Florida State is over.

Coach Bobby Bowden says the junior receiver has been dismissed
from after a third run-in with the law.

The 21-year-old Parker was arrested and charged with driving
under the influence last weekend after Tallahassee police found him
asleep in his running car early Saturday.

The police report says Parker admitted he had been drinking and
smoking marijuana. It was the third time Parker has been arrested
since 2006.

Parker was suspended for the first two games of the 2008 season
after being arrested last April in Palm Beach County on weapons and
drug charges, a felony that was later reduced.
