Texas quarterback facing drug, DWI and weapons charges

The University of Texas at El Paso has suspended starting quarterback Kai Locksley after learning that he was taken into custody on June 8. The 22-year-old athlete faces a raft of charges including drug possession, driving while intoxicated, carrying a weapon unlawfully and making a terroristic threat. Media reports indicate that he was released from the El Paso County Jail shortly after his arrest after posting a bond of $2,900.

Police conducted a traffic stop after an off-duty officer reported that he had seen Locksley brandishing a handgun and heard him threaten to discharge it into a group of people. Initial reports do not reveal what may have caused the incident. After pulling his vehicle over, officers claim that Locksley seemed incoherent and had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. A search of his vehicle is said to have led to the discovery of a Smith & Wesson semiautomatic handgun and a prescription pill bottle containing approximately half a gram of marijuana.

Locksley, who is the son of Maryland's head football coach, seemed on course to have a breakout season. He started eight games for UTEP in 2018 and led the team with 937 passing yards. He also rushed for 340 yards. Locksley was an All-American in 2017, and ESPN rated him as one of the 300 best prospects in the country in 2015.

When representing young people who have made mistakes, experienced criminal defense attorneys may urge prosecutors to consider rehabilitation rather than punishment. Attorneys could make these arguments zealously when no bystanders were injured and their clients face drug charges over small amounts of marijuana.
