May 24, 2016 - 5:02 am

Boston College announced Monday that redshirt sophomore quarterback/wide receiver Troy Flutie has been suspended from the team after his weekend arrest for operating under the influence of alcohol. Flutie, the nephew of BC legend Doug Flutie, was arrested around 1 a.m. Saturday after hitting a curb in his hometown of Natick, police told The MetroWest Daily News. The 20-year-old was arrested for OUI, possession of an open container of liquor while driving, being a person under 21 in possession of liquor, and marked lanes violations, the Daily News reported. "Troy has been suspended from the football team by Coach Steve Addazio pending further investigation and faces the possibility of additional University sanctions pending the outcome of the court proceedings," BC said in a statement. Flutie was released without bail at his arraignment Monday. He is due back in court June 20 for a pretrial conference. Flutie appeared in eight games as a quarterback last season and completed 24-of-49 passes for 382 yards and three touchdowns with one interception. He is transitioning to wide receiver for the 2016 season.
