OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi cornerback Charles Sawyer was arrested and charged with DUI and running a stop sign on campus this weekend.

Lafayette County jail records state that Sawyer was arrested by a university police officer at 2 a.m. on Sunday and released five hours later after posting bail,. The university police department declined to release further details.

The senior was a third team All-Southeastern Conference preseason selection, but has not played much this season because of a lingering shoulder injury.

Sawyer is one of the few veterans on defense as No. 25 Ole Miss (2-0) prepares to face Texas (1-1) on Saturday in Austin, Texas.

Ole Miss spokesman Kyle Campbell wrote in a text that coach Hugh Freeze would address Sawyer's arrest at his weekly press conference later Monday.
