Detectives were working an unrelated case around 7th Avenue and Polk in Eugene when they spotted Lyerla in a vehicle, apparently snorting a white powdery substance.

Andrew Greif from the Oregonian summarized what happened next.

Lyerla then ran into a neighboring apartment. He was arrested after he emerged from the residence and was then transported to Lane County Jail.

Oregon Ducks receiver Josh Huff has weighed in on the situation.

We'll have more on this story as it develops.
