NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Sophomore running back Zach Logan has been dismissed from the Vanderbilt football team due to violating team rules, Commodores coach Bobby Johnson announced Wednesday.

Logan, 20, who went to Rivercrest High School in Wilson, Ark., was arrested and charged with driving under the influence Friday after a Nashville police officer spotted him driving the wrong way down a road near Vanderbilt's campus.

University officials declined further comment on the dismissal of Logan.

Logan played in 10 games last year as a blocking fullback. He had one rushing attempt for three yards.

The incident was Friday the second time Logan has been in trouble with authorities as a student.

Logan was charged with aggravated assault and assault last year following an altercation with two students in a dormitory elevator and was temporarily suspended from the team.

The Commodores are expected to start spring drills on March 14, continuing through mid-April. The featured Black & Gold Scrimmage is scheduled April 1.

The Commodores open their 12-game schedule at Michigan on Sept. 2.
