Utah State University linebacker Jake Doughty has been charged with buying beer for two underage females during a spring break trip in Southern Utah.
Doughty, 21, was boating at Sand Hollow State Park outside of St. George on Tuesday when rangers pulled up to the boat for an inspection and discovered two underage drinkers, according to a probable cause statement filed Wednesday in 5th District Court. The two females took breath tests that were positive for alcohol and said that Doughty and another person on the boat had purchased the alcohol for them, court documents state.
"Doughty stated that he had purchased the alcohol and supplied it to [the pair]," according to court documents. "Doughty stated that he was responsible for everything."
