Texas Tech WR get pretrial diversion for DWI

A Texas Tech wide receiver suspended from the team last month

for a drunken-driving charge has agreed to enter a pretrial

diversion program.

Coach Tommy Tuberville suspended Darrin Moore from the team in

July, three months after his arrest. Team spokesman Blayne Beal

says Moore has continued practicing with the team and is listed on

the roster for Saturday night’s opener against Northwestern

State.

If the senior, who caught 47 passes for 571 yards and eight TDs

in 2011, successfully completes the program no record of a

conviction will appear on his record, officials said.

Moore’s requirements include talking about the dangers of

alcohol abuse to students, completing 40 hours of community service

and donating $500 to the Lubbock Boys & Girls Clubs.
