Auburn center Reese Dismukes arrested for public intoxication, suspended.

The last thing Auburn needed a week before a high-profile game against Clemson in the Georgia Dome was an player getting arrested. But that's what happened as center Reese Dismukes was arrested for public intoxication in the Loveliest Village on the Plain a week before the season opening Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game in Atlanta.

"Dismukes was arrested for public intoxication by Auburn police near Auburn Hardware in the 100 block of East Magnolia Avenue at 2:03 a.m. Saturday, according to the arrest report for the 19-year-old.

Officers detained Dismukes after he appeared intoxicated. Dismukes did not resist arrest, according to the report.

Dismukes was released on $300 bond, according to Lee County Sheriff online records. Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones said Dismukes was released mid-morning."

Auburn head football coach Gene Chizik has already banhammered Dismukes, suspending him indefinitely.
