TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida State coach Bobby Bowden has
indefinitely suspended senior wide receiver Rod Owens on Monday
after the player's weekend drunk driving arrest.

Police spokesman David McCranie said that Owens was arrested in
Tallahassee on a DUI charge after blowing nearly double the state's
legal standard of .08 on a breath test early Sunday. He was
released from jail later that day.

The school said it would not have any further comment on the
incident.

Owens didn't return a message left for him at the school and a
home telephone listing wasn't available.

Five players - all receivers - sat out at least one game last
fall for their role in a noon-hour campus brawl that led to the
arrest of two players. One of those athletes, sophomore Bert Reed,
was suspended three times last season for different reasons.

Receiver and punt returner Preston Parker was kicked off the
team in February after multiple arrests.
