STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - A Mississippi college football kicker has been arrested on DUI charges.

News outlets report that Mississippi State University kicker Jace Christmann was arrested early Saturday. Oktibbeha County Sheriff's Office Lt. Jon Davis says the 21-year-old had been stopped for failing to dim headlights.

Davis declined to provide the specific finding of a blood alcohol content test, but says that it was very little more than the state's legal limit of 0.08.

Christmann was released from jail on $1,680 bail. It's unclear if he has a lawyer who could comment.

The school says in a statement that it's working to gather information about the situation.

The sophomore from Houston made 24 of 30 field goal attempts and all 83 extra point attempts in the 2017 and 2018 seasons.
