A quarterback for the University of Texas at El Paso was arrested and hit with multiple charges on Saturday, including making terroristic threats.

Kai Locksley is also accused of driving under the influence, possession of under two ounces of marijuana and unlawful carrying of a weapon, according to ABC News. Locksley, who was a starter for most of last season, was suspended by the school.

“We are aware of the charges against Kai Locksley,” UTEP coach Dana Dimel said. “While the severity of these charges is concerning, it would not be appropriate to determine a course of action until we have all the facts.”

Locksley was later released on bond. It was unclear what the terroristic threats charge was related to, and the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office could not be immediately reached for comment.

The quarterback is the son of Maryland head coach Mike Locksley and was a standout prep player in the Baltimore area. He passed for 937 yards and three touchdowns last season, but tossed nine interceptions.

“I know what it feels like to be at the top,” the prized recruit told the Des Moines Register in 2017, “and I also know what it feels like to be at the bottom.”
