Terrence Mitchell was arrested Tuesday morning near the South Florida campus and is now facing DUI and assault charges.

According to the police report, the former South Florida wide receiver was found passed out in a car facing the wrong way down a street and in drive at approximately 1:26 a.m. After police officers woke him up and Mitchell was examined by Tampa Fire and Rescue, he became unhappy and unleashed his inner Luis Suarez.

While being evaluated by Tampa Fire Rescue personnel, Mitchell "became agitated," according to the report, and "twice attempted to bite an EMT (against the will of the EMT)." The report states that after being read his rights, Mitchell admitted to police that he had consumed alcoholic beverages, was feeling its effects and "that he should not have been on the road."

It's a good thing that we clarified the EMT did not want to be bitten. According to the arrest reports, Mitchell's blood alcohol level twice registered above 0.15 and double the legal limit. He's also charged with driving with a suspended license. You can view the arrest record here.

Mitchell was suspended by new South Florida coach Willie Taggart this spring after being arrested for marijuana possession and was expected to transfer to Fort Hays State in Kansas after leaving the program in June, though he didn't enroll.

Last season, Mitchell started 10 games and had 31 catches for 414 yards and a touchdown.
