Penn State, Pittsburgh senior backup offensive tackle Ako Poti has been charged with driving under the influence.
He was pulled over July 17 by State College police and had a blood alcohol content between 0.10 and 0.16, which is more than the legal limit of 0.08, police said. Poti also was charged with disregarding traffic lanes.
He received a citation in the mail July 20 and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Sept. 2.
Poti, a transfer from San Francisco Community College, has appeared in just four career games for the Nittany Lions.
