Colquitt, 22, reportedly hit a parked Ford Focus on Jackson Avenue at 2:56 Sunday morning while driving a 1998 Jeep Cherokee. He then fled the scene, only to be arrested shortly thereafter on Gill Avenue.
Colquitt admitted to consuming two beers and three mixed drinks, hitting a parked car and hitting a tree stump.
Police noted a strong odor of alcohol, bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. They also said Colquitt performed poorly on a field sobriety test.
A son of former Vol punter Craig Colquitt and younger brother of former Vol punter Dustin Colquitt, Britton Colquitt signed with Tennessee in 2003 after a standout career at Bearden High School in Knoxville.
Before he could enroll at UT, however, he was twice cited for underage consumption and once for an on-campus DUI. His penance reportedly included community service, counseling and meeting with a probation officer. He reportedly was suspended from the Vol football team in the spring of '04.
Colquitt apparently had no run-ins with the law from the spring of 2004 until this morning's incident – a span of nearly four years.
A consensus first-team All-SEC pick in 2006, he averaged 44.9 yards per punt as a sophomore that season. His average dipped to 41.6 yards as a junior 2007. He was expected to be a preseason All-American heading into the 2008 season.
