Austin Maloata’s time with the Oregon Ducks is over.

The defensive lineman was arrested early Sunday morning on charges of DUII, reckless driving and possession of a controlled substance, per The Oregonian. He has been dismissed from the team as a result.

Maloata reportedly drove through a red light near the campus and hit another car, which led to the arrest. The junior appeared in eight games this season.
