PROVO, Utah – For the second year in a row, a BYU football player has been arrested during the off-season on suspicion of a DUI. Linebacker Chaz Ah You was arrested on suspicion of DUI.

Ah You was arrested on Sunday, February 9th in Eagle Mountain along Red Hawk Road and Pony Express Parkway, according to documents filed in Utah County Court. Documents show that Ah You was going 75 miles per hour in a 35 mile per hour zone and was following close to other vehicles while driving.

Records from the police also indicate that during the inventory search of the vehicle two containers of alcohol were found. One container contained a consumable amount and the other one was empty. Due to weather, a field sobriety test was performed at Utah County Jail.

According to court documents, a THC vape pen was also found in Ah You’s vehicle.

Ah You was charged on suspicion of a DUI, reckless driving, unsafe lane travel, speeding, and an open container.

A junior outside linebacker, Ah You is viewed as one of BYU’s top players in a young linebacker unit that made significant strides a season ago.

Last season, in his first year back after serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Ah You recorded 31 tackles, one sack, one interception, and also forced a fumble.

A heralded four-star recruit who had offers from over 30 different college football programs, Ah You signed with BYU from Timpview High School in the class of 2017 and has drawn comparisons to NFL and former BYU linebackers Kyle Van Noy and Fred Warner for his athletic play at the position.

Last season, wide receiver Neil Pau’u was arrested on suspicion of a DUI while driving on campus. Pau’u was suspended for the entire 2019 season but remained a student at BYU. Pau’u is expected to rejoin the team in 2020.

A representative from BYU said they are aware of the situation and looking into it.
