WR Buckner Leaving Texas


AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas wide receiver Dan Buckner is leaving the team after being arrested on a misdemeanor trespassing charge and allegedly resisting arrest.

Texas officials released a statement Thursday from Buckner and coach Mack Brown saying Buckner would transfer to another school. Brown said Buckner will be released from his scholarship.

According to police, Buckner was visiting a woman at her apartment in College Station early Thursday when they got into an argument and he was asked to leave.

Buckner was escorted by police to his vehicle but refused to leave and resisted when officers tried to place him under arrest.

Bucker caught one pass for minus-3 yards in Texas' 37-21 loss to Alabama in the BCS championship game.
