Casey Pachall has been indefinitely suspended by Texas Christian University head coach Gary Patterson after being arrested and charged with a DWI early Thursday morning.

Texas Christian University starting quarterback Casey Pachall was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated early on Thursday morning.

According to the police report, a Fort Worth police officer observed Pachall failing to stop at a stop sign in addition to hitting a curb. Pachall reportedly had an estimated blood alcohol concentration level of .17, which is double the legal limit. According to NBC's Fort Worth affiliate, the 21-year-old quarterback is still being held in jail on $1,000 bond.

Following the arrest, Pachall was indefinitely suspended by TCU head coach Gary Patterson, who is refusing to address the media until after Saturday's game against Iowa State. He did, however, release the following statement:

"Casey Pachall has been suspended indefinitely from competition. My job as a head coach is to win games, educate our kids and help them with their lives."

West Virginia University is scheduled to play TCU on Nov. 3 at Milan Puskar Stadium.
