More trouble for Stanback

Harold Stanback, kicked off the team last month along with four others for a violation of team rules, was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated in Storrs over the weekend.

According to the police report, Stanback was pulled over by campus police for driving erratically on Glenbrook Road Saturday at 3:47 a.m. Police suspected Stanback was driving under the influence of either drugs or alchohol and issued a series of field sobriety tests which Stanback failed. He was subsequently arrested, processed and released on a $500 bond.

A junior from Temple Hills , Md. , Stanback was in the middle of his fourth season with the UConn football team as a defensive end. He was used mainly on special teams and as a backup on the defensive line and had appeared in every game when he was dismissed along with four other players on Oct. 9 for a violation of team rules.

The group had purchased beer at a convenience store the night before a Big East game at South Florida and attempted to smuggled it into to the team hotel. Others dismissed for the incident were wide receiver Todd Dorcelus, linebacker Carl Teague, defensive back Ricky McCollum and wide receiver Nollis Dewar.
