Dallas Cowboys rookie QB Prescott found Not Guilty of DUI

From WTVA.com Mississippi:

STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) – Former Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott was found not guilty on Wednesday of charges of driving under the influence and speeding.

Prescott appeared in Starkville Municipal Court on Wednesday after being arrested in the spring.

It was back in March when Prescott was pulled over by Starkville Police and taken into custody on DUI and speeding charges.

During his trial his lawyer Jay Perry showed an hour-long video of footage from that night.

Perry said the footage clearly showed Prescott was not under the influence, and the judge ruled in his favor.

“Dak is most excited to have it behind him and over with,” Perry said. “He will leave tomorrow, headed to California. Camp starts tomorrow. That is what he is most excited about. He loves this city. He looks forward to come back, but more than anything we’re just really excited, happy and pleased with the outcome. That it’s over and now he can concentrate on Playing for the Dallas Cowboys.”

Prescott, who broke 38 school records at MSU, was selected by the Dallas Cowboys in this year’s NFL Draft. The Cowboys begin training camp this week.
