Washington State running back Jamal Morrow appeared in Whitman County District Court before Judge Douglas B. Robinson on Thursday and pleaded guilty to DUI.

Morrow was charged with DUI in January when he was pulled over by a Pullman Police Department officer for driving the wrong way down a one way street. According to court documents, he had a blood alcohol content of 0.14.

Morrow was sentenced to one day in jail, and will also have to pay a fine of $900.

Prosecuting attorney Merritt Decker did not immediately return a call seeking comment on the case.

Morrow, who will be a junior in the fall, played 12 games at running back for WSU in 2015 and was named captain in nine consecutive games to end the season. He started three games and finished last season as WSU’s second leading rusher, with 347 yards. He also had 294 receiving yards and four receiving touchdowns.

WSU football declined comment through Sports Information Director Bill Stevens, who said the Cougars do not comment on team matters.
