Justin Medlock, UCLA's placekicker, was arrested early Saturday morning on suscipicion of driving under the influence.

Medlock, a junior who is 22 years old, will probably not be able to play in the Sun Bowl December 30th.

According to reports, Medlock had been in Orange County Friday night, and when driving back to Los Angeles rolled his car, after he had been drinking earlier. He was arrested by the California Highway Patrol and booked on a felony charge of driving under the influence of alcohol. He was released Saturday morning after posting a $10,000 bond.

Medlock and a fellow passenger were treated for minor injuries.

Medlock faces fines and potentially some jail time. Within the football program, he will more than likely be suspended. In the past, when a player has violated a team rule, Head Coach Karl Dorrell has levied suspensions, some being one-game suspensions and other being longer.

Without Medlock, UCLA's kicking game will be a major question for the Sun Bowl December 30th. UCLA does have a couple of walk-on kickers, freshmen Brian Malette Valencia High School, and Jimmy Rotstein, from Brentwood School. Aaron Perez, UCLA's redshirt freshman punter, could also be chosen to perform kick-off and field goal duties.
