PROVO, UTAH (AP)-BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall has kicked
defensive back Shiloah Te'o off the team. Provo city justice court records show that Te'o was charged Sept. 18 with driving under the influence from an arrest in August.

Mendenhall said in a statement tuesday that Te'o has been
dismissed for an undisclosed violation of team rules. He told the Salt Lake tribune for a story posted online wednesday that he learned of the charge over the weekend, then decided to dismiss the sophomore safety after practice tuesday night. Students at the Mormon Church-owned school agree to live by BYU's honor code, which forbids drinking alcohol.
