Four Texas Tech football players, including potential starting QB Jett Duffey, were arrested early Sunday morning, according to Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office records found online.
The arrests were first reported by InsideTheRedRaiders.com’s Jarrett Johnson.
The players were all booked into the Lubbock County Jail, according to online records.
Duffey was booked at 4:15 a.m. and charged with criminal mischief.
Three other players –CB Desmon Smith, safety Christian Taylor and WR Quan Shorts — were also arrested on Sunday morning.
Taylor is the only other player with a charge listed (criminal mischief), but all three were booked early Sunday morning. Taylor was booked at 4:48 am, Shorts was booked at 5:08 a.m. and Smith was booked at 8:07 a.m., according to online records.
Texas Tech had an open scrimmage in Midland on Saturday.
Duffey, a Mansfield Legacy graduate and the 2015 SportsDayHS Offensive Player of the Year, has been competing with McLane Carter for the Texas Tech starting QB job. After redshirting his first season in Lubbock, Duffey was suspended by Texas Tech for the spring and summer of 2017 after a Title IX hearing panel sided with a woman who alleged that Duffey had sex with when she was too incapacitated to consent. A grand jury ultimately decided there was not enough cause to criminally prosecute the case.
