By Mary Ann

Tucson police revealed yesterday that University of Arizona reserve guard Daniel Dillon was arrested on suspicion of DUI last weekend.

Police reports said that Dillon was pulled over early Sunday morning by an officer who noticed a speeding car. The report added that the officer conducted a DUI investigation in which Dillon denied having anything to drink.

After undergoing field sobriety tests, Dillon was cited and arrested on suspicion of speeding, DUI and DUI with a blood alcohol content above the state’s legal limit of 0.08 percent. The report did not reveal what Dillon’s BAC was.

Dillon, a junior guard from Melbourne, Australia, will turn 21 on March 19th. Arizona Men’s Basketball Coach Lute Olsen was reviewing the situation with authorities and did not offer any comment.

Arizona athletic department spokesman Tom Duddleston said that Dillon did practice with the team Tuesday and was expected to travel to New Orleans for its first round game Friday against Purdue in the NCAA Tournament. Dillon has averaged 1.9 points and 11 minutes in 29 games for the Wildcats this season.
