Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel was arrested for suspicion of driving while intoxicated late Wednesday. Pinkel, 59, was stopped on Keene Street in Columbia, Mo., at about 10:15 p.m. because of lane and signal violations, Boone County Sheriffs Department Chief Deputy Major Tom Reddin said. At the time, Pinkel was the lone person in his Chevrolet Avalanche. Reddin said deputies developed probable cause that Pinkel was occupying the vehicle under influence of alcohol. Pinkel was taken into custody and transported to Boone County Jail. He posted 500 bond on the charge of DWI first offense and is no longer in custody. Reddin said reports will be compiled and presented to the Boone County prosecuting attorneys office, which is standard procedure for their review in considering whether to file formal charges. He was cooperative throughout his contact with law enforcement, Reddin said of Pinkel. Missouri (5-5, 3-4 Big 12 Conference) beat Texas last Saturday at Memorial Stadium, and the Tigers will play Texas Tech on Saturday in their home finale. They close the regular season against Kansas on Nov. 26. Pinkel is in his 11th year at Missouri. The Tigers are trying to become bowl eligible for the seventh straight season. Were treating this incident investigation in the same manner we would anyone else, Reddin said. Our deputies did all of the same procedures as if this was not a publically known figure.
