Duke cornerback T.J. Douglas arrested, dismissed from team

Duke redshirt sophomore cornerback T.J. Douglas has been dismissed from the team Sunday for violation of program policy, coach David Cutcliffe announced.

Douglas was arrested earlier in the day on suspicion on driving while impaired in Durham. He was booked and released without bond the same day, according to the Durham county jail inmate population records.

Douglas played in 12 games and recorded one tackle last season. This year, he had been practicing with the team but was suspended indefinitely from game competition, a punishment in place since the spring.
