 Murray State University football player Zeke Pike has been dismissed from the team after he was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs, possession of marijuana and resisting arrest.

Pike was arrested Sunday following a traffic stop conducted by the Calloway County Sheriff's Office. In addition to resisting arrest, Pike allegedly broke free from the arresting deputy while in transport to Murray-Calloway County Hospital, but was quickly caught.

Coach Mitch Stewart told the Murray State News Pike’s dismissal from the team was for the 22-year-old quarterback’s own good.

Pike transferred to MSU after time at the University of Louisville and Auburn University. Pike is a former five-star recruit, at one time rated by Scout.com as the no. 1 player in Kentucky while playing at Dixie Heights High School.
