Nate Montana, son of Hall-Of-Fame Quarterback Joe Montana, was arrested on suspicion of DUI Friday morning. This was his 2nd alcohol related arrest in a year.
The 21-year-old college quarterback was arrested at 3:46 a.m. Friday morning, and was released less than an hour later on a $685 bond, according to the Associated Press.
Montana was also arrested last July, at a party, and charged with underage drinking. He was 20 at the time.
His father, Joe, was arguably the best quarterback ever to play in the NFL, where he spent several seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, bringing them four superbowls in 11 seasons.
The Missoulian spoke to the University of Montana's Athletic director about what the arrest would mean for the Junior quarterback.
Jim O'Day, UM's athletic director, said that Montana's case will be handled much the same way as similar situations in the past: UM officials will allow the judicial system to run its course while following it closely, and handling additional discipline internally.
