BYU linebacker Chaz Ah You won’t be officially charged with a crime after his Feb. 9 arrest on DUI charges.
Ah You was pulled over a month ago after he was allegedly driving up to 75 MPH on a stretch of road with speed limits 20-40 MPH lower. According to the Deseret News, the sheriff’s deputy who pulled him over said that he found alcohol and a “THC vape pen” in the vehicle.
Tuesday afternoon, the Utah County Attorney’s office said in a news release that Ah You wasn’t going to be prosecuted because of a “lack of admissible evidence.”
“Justice would not be served in this matter,” Utah County attorney David Leavitt said in a news release. “This has nothing to do with who he is or where he attends school. My job is to safeguard the rights of all in a potential criminal matter and direct my attention to the law and the facts.”
The arresting deputy said he performed a field sobriety test on Ah You after the linebacker was taken to jail. In his notes, the deputy said Ah You struggled counting to 30 and “forensic results showed a presumptive measurable amount in his system.”
Ah You had shoulder surgery after the end of the 2019 season. Coach Kalani Sitake said on March 2 that Ah You had to go through the “process” to rejoin the team and wouldn’t be a part of spring practices.KSL Sports✔@kslsports
Ah You is in line to be one of BYU’s key players on defense in 2020. He had 31 tackles — including 5.5 for a loss — in 2019 and also had an interception. He was a four-star member of the school’s 2017 recruiting class and was listed by Rivals as the No. 18 safety in the country and the No. 3 player in the state of Utah. https://r.search.yahoo.com/_ylt=AwrXnCGAdM5evnwAtxjQtDMD;_ylu=X3oDMTBzdmVvZmlwBGNvbG8DZ3ExBHBvcwMxMAR2dGlkAwRzZWMDc3I-/RV=2/RE=1590617344/RO=10/RU=https%3a%2f%2fsports.yahoo.com%2fbyu-lb-wont-be-prosecuted-over-dui-charges-because-of-a-lack-of-admissible-evidence-131322034.html/RK=2/RS=GqT6ywK2k0AHiaKbe4vQwYjbs7w-
