JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Former Mississippi State quarterback and NFL Draft prospect Dak Prescott was arrested and charged with driving under the influence early Saturday morning.

The Starkville Police Department confirmed Prescott's arrest on Twitter late Saturday night. The post said he was arrested around 12:45 a.m. and that there is "no further information from SPD in this incident."

The 6-foot-2, 226-pound Prescott is arguably the best player in Mississippi State history, rewriting the school's passing records and helping the program win a combined 19 games in his junior and senior seasons.

Prescott - who was often praised for his character during his time at Mississippi State - is projected to be drafted anywhere between the second and fourth rounds of April's NFL Draft.

The Jackson (Miss.) Clarion-Ledger first reported Prescott's arrest.
