RENO — A graduate assistant for the University of Nevada, Reno football program has been arrested on a drunken driving charge after he crashed his car into the Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks.
The Reno Gazette-Journal reports that Jeff Nady was suspended from the team as a result of Friday night’s crash.
No injuries were reported.
Nady is in his second season on the Nevada coaching staff.
Police say Nady struck a sign while attempting to get off Interstate 80 and tried to make a turn when he crashed into the resort.
They say Nady left his vehicle and ran into the resort, where he was arrested.
Nady played for the Wolf Pack from 2008-12 and for the National Football League’s Jacksonville Jaguars and Atlanta Falcons.
It’s unclear whether Nady has been assigned an attorney.
