Is Kevin Olsen the next Seantrel Henderson? He's starting to seem like yet another highly touted University of Miami recruit who will end up being remembered more for his off-the-field antics.
Olson was arrested and booked at 4 a.m. this morning for driving under the influence and for possession of a fake or stolen ID after police stopped him in South Miami.
Olsen had already been suspended for the first two games this season due to a failed drug test, and was suspended during last season's bowl game for breaking undisclosed team rules.
He has now been suspended indefinitely from the team following today's arrest.
According to Andy Slater, Olsen had five separate IDs on him: two from Maryland, one from New Jersey, one from North Carolina, and one from Florida. He admitted one of the Maryland IDs was a fake, and the Florida ID had the name "Ronald Stanley Regula Jr."
Olsen, a native of New Jersey, was one of the top pro-style quarterback recruits of his class. He also received interest from school like Florida and Florida State, but decided to attend the U. His brother, current NFL player Greg Olsen, also played at the University of Miami.
