RENO, Nev. (AP) — A graduate assistant for football program at University of Nevada in Reno has been arrested on a drunken driving charge after he crashed his car into the Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports that Jeff Nady was suspended from the team as a result of Friday night’s crash.

No injuries were reported.

Nady is in his second season on the Nevada coaching staff.

Police say Nady struck a sign while attempting to get off Interstate 80 and tried to make a turn when he crashed into the resort.

They say Nady left his vehicle and ran into the resort, where he was arrested.

Nady played for the Wolf Pack from 2008-12 and for the NFL’s Jaguars and Falcons.

It’s unclear whether Nady has been assigned an attorney.
