Vols' Owenby Pleads Guilty To Reckless Driving

CREATED Jan 23, 2014

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee pitcher Drake Owenby has pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of reckless driving nine months after a DUI arrest.

Owenby received a six-month suspended sentence Tuesday that also requires him to pay a $50 fine plus court costs. Owenby had been arrested on a DUI charge during an April 14 traffic stop by Knoxville police on Interstate 275.

Owenby, a sophomore left-hander, was 2-1 with a 5.60 ERA and two saves in 16 appearances as a freshman last season.

Tennessee athletic department spokesman Brian Bruce said that Owenby and Volunteers coach Dave Serrano declined comment on the matter.

The Vols open the season February14 against Nebraska-Omaha.
