Tyler Bray in court for alleged reckless behavior on a jet ski.

Tennessee star quarterback Tyler Bray is back in the news for all the wrong reasons again. This time Bray, who recently got in trouble for throwing beer bottles off his apartment balcony, is going to court on Wednesday for an incident involving a jet ski on July 4. With a female passenger.

"According to Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency officer Dewayne Williams, Bray was driving a Jet Ski with a woman passenger when he was observed by Williams "hot dogging" with another Jet Ski. Williams explained the term "hot dogging" as "almost like playing chicken" on Jet Skis.
The other Jet Ski tipped over spilling the unidentified occupants into the water. Bray then sped near the swimmers "spraying them with water," according to Williams, who added "he was almost on top of them."

Jet Skis are supposed to operate at least 100 feet apart, Williams said.

The charges include a Class A misdemeanor for reckless operation of a personal watercraft, and a Class C misdemeanor for failure to have a boating education certificate.

The Class A misdemeanor carries a possible $2,500 fine and six months in jail."

If you think Derek Dooley wasn't too happy about the beer bottle incident, you can probably guess how he feels about His Brayness doing a Bobby Petrino on a watercraft. He probably has a right to be, as Bray is slowly becoming something between an incident player, and the SEC's next Stephen Garcia. Neither one is really going to help your program win a crystal football.
