Missouri linebacker Noah Robinson was arrested early Friday morning on suspicion of driving while intoxicated near campus, MU Police confirmed. Robinson, 23, a walk-on graduate who transferred to Mizzou from Memphis last year, is a reserve linebacker and plays on multiple special teams units. He’s been suspended indefinitely, team spokesman Chad Moller said.

Robinson appeared in 10 games last year and has played in both games this season with one tackle on the year. He was MU’s second-leading tackler in April’s Black and Gold scrimmage and began preseason camp as the team’s No. 2 middle linebacker. He is not on the team's latest depth chart.

Robinson was arrested at 3:04 a.m. near the intersection of Stadium Boulevard and College Avenue and later booked at Boone County Jail with bond set at $500. A DWI for a first-time offender is a Class B misdemeanor. According to the Mizzou student-athlete handbook, an athlete arrested for DWI will be suspended from team activities for a minimum of one week for a first offense.

The Tigers (2-0) leave Friday for Saturday’s game at Purdue (0-2) in West Lafayette, Ind.
