KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee freshman safety Darren Myles Jr. is facing misdemeanor charges and possible discipline by the program, Vols coach Derek Dooley said Sunday.

Myles was charged after an early Sunday morning incident, though Tennessee did not reveal details. No information was available from Knoxville police about the incident.

The Volunteers' spring game was Saturday.

Dooley said in a statement he was disappointed in Myles' behavior and will investigate the charges before deciding on a punishment.

Last season, the Vols had three players charged with attempted armed robbery in November while a fourth player was cited for shoplifting a week later.
