North Carolina redshirt sophomore A.J. Blue was arrested early Sunday morning on charges of driving while impaired and violating open container laws.
Blue was arrested in Burlington at 2:31 a.m. Sunday morning.
Team spokesman Kevin Best said Blue was the first to tell the UNC football coaching staff of the arrest. Best said the team will handle the matter internally.
Blue spent a year at Hargrave Military Academy before coming to UNC. In 2007 while at North Gaston High School, Blue was cited for resisting a public officer. That charged was later dismissed.
