Auburn’s back-up quarterback, Sean White, was arrested early Sunday morning after what sounds like he was having a little too much fun after their win against Mercer University.
White was arrested around 2:45 am on Sunday morning according to the arrest report. This was also the first time White has been arrested, but he was suspended for the first game of the season due to undisclosed reasons.
In Alabama, being publicly intoxicated is punishable by fine and other court costs. According to USA TODAY Sports, White has his first court date scheduled for November 30.

Many people were also defending the quarterback.
Sean White is a good kid who is hitting a heavy period of adversity. Injuries, expectations…support and pick him up, #Auburn. Be family.
