FORT WORTH -- TCU quarterback Casey Pachall has been suspended indefinitely after he was arrested early Thursday on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.Pachall was booked into the Fort Worth Jail and transferred at 4 a.m. to the Mansfield Jail, where he remained until his parents posted $1,000 bail about 1:40 p.m.He declined to comment as he left the jail."If he was just a regular student there at TCU, you guys wouldn't be talking to me right now," Pachall's father, Stan Pachall, told reporters outside the Mansfield Jail. "But he's got a lot more responsibility on his shoulders and so he needs to be responsible for himself. Now we're going to start that journey and see where that leads us."Coach Gary Patterson said Pachall will suit up for Saturday's game against Iowa State but won't play. After Thursday's afternoon practice, Patterson said he won't decide until Sunday whether Pachall will be suspended for more games. Patterson said he wants Pachall in uniform and on the sideline as a way of facing the music."I'm not going to let him hide," Patterson said. "He's going to be right out there with us: win, lose or draw. Right now, I'm thinking about a football game. On Sunday, I'll have more of a plan."Patterson said he got a call around 2 a.m. about the arrest, which happened about 12:55 a.m. near the university.On his local radio show Thursday night, Patterson said he is glad that no one was injured."We've had a problem with alcohol in this country and someone could've gotten killed. He could've killed himself," Patterson said. "It's not the right thing to do. We teach them differently than that. Bottom line is, I'm glad that Casey's safe and I'm glad that no one got hurt."Patterson said Pachall, who admitted to failing a drug test in February, had been tested each Monday since the season began with a couple of teammates. Patterson said they have each tested negative."I'm disappointed because of everything we've gone through," Patterson said. "Whether it's the situation that happened today or something else ... I picked up the paper this morning and bad things were happening everywhere. So how do you focus and keep doing what I'm supposed to be doing, which is lead a team and be one of the faces of this university and handle things in the right way?"Fort Worth police pulled Pachall over after an officer saw the car he was driving run a stop sign, said Sgt. Pedro Criado, a police spokesman.Mansfield Jail records indicate that his blood-alcohol content was at least 0.15, almost twice the legal limit of 0.08.It's the second time this year that Pachall has made headlines for substance abuse.In August, he publicly apologized after a Fort Worth police report revealed that he had admitted to failing a drug test in February.Police had questioned Pachall when four TCU players were arrested in a drug bust. One of those arrested, Tanner Brock, was Pachall's roommate. The four players were dismissed from the team.At the time, Patterson said Pachall "went through the university drug and alcohol awareness" program that is required of first-time offenders."For me, kids screw up. There's team policies. There's university policies. There's rules and he knew what was in place," Patterson said on the national radio show. "The media and everybody else is going to make this about Casey Pachall. The thing head coaches do is we don't make this about Casey Pachall. I mean if I do, then I'm saying everybody else is not important."What I'm going to do, we're going to go out and practice and get ready to beat Iowa State. That's how you stay somewhere 15 years. You stay somewhere 15 years because you don't lose sight of what your initial goal was anyway. It's always been about 'we.' It's never been about 'I' or one person."Backup quarterback Trevone Boykin, a redshirt freshman from West Mesquite High School, will start Saturday. Boykin has seen limited time at quarterback through four games.The TCU roster has taken a beating since the end of last season. The Frogs have lost 20 players to injury, academic issues or dismissal.This report includes material from the Star-Telegram archives.
