On July 7th, Alex Dunnachie became the third University of Hawaii football player arrested in four months on suspicion of drunken driving.
It happened less than a day after Coach Norm Chow's knock-down, drag-out "this will not happen again" speech with his team.
Chow has already said Dunnachie will not be allowed to report to training camp on August 1st. His court date is August 3rd.
Dunnachie was arrested at two in the morning at the intersection of Pensacola and South King.
Court documents show had a blood alcohol level of point 13. The legal limit is point 08.
Chow said he plans to wait until after Dunnachie's court date to decide on a punishment - as he did with other players.
Chow has already suspended Alema Tachibana who was arrested on June 18th on DUI allegations, and Cayman Shutter who was arrested during spring break.
In a press conference on Wednesday, Dunnachie's attorney said he believes those suspensions were a violation of the university’s student handbook, because the players were not notified on time.
"We're just trying to give him his so called due process. There is a handbook in place, an athlete code of conduct, that says if a players arrested for DUI, the athletic director has to give written notice within 72 hours that that player will be suspended, and if that doesn't happen then the window closes at that point," said Dunnachie's Attorney Paul Cunney.
Cunney believes Chow simply may not have known about the notification requirement, but now that he does, it won't likely happen again.
"No one's going to get away with it in the future. This is probably a draw the line in the sand thing at this point, and maybe Alex will not have to deal with the reprecussions, but it's notice to the next player involved that he is going to have to tow the line," said Cunney.
Coach Chow was flying back from Vegas Wednesday night and was not available for comment.
