COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Missouri freshman quarterback Maty Mauk has been arrested on suspicion of four charges including leaving the scene of an accident after a scooter mishap.

Mauk is third on the depth chart after a record-setting high school career in Kenton, Ohio, and is the second Missouri quarterback to have a scrape with the law in recent months. Redshirt freshman Corbin Berkstresser, the backup, was arrested and charged in May with a misdemeanor for hitting a parked car with his truck and leaving the scene.

Missouri spokesman Chad Moller said the school was aware of the situation and was dealing with it internally. The Tigers open the season Saturday night against Southeastern Louisiana.

Campus police said Mauk made contact with two vehicles on his scooter with two female passengers onboard just after midnight Thursday morning, then refused to pull over and ran a stop sign.

Mauk turned himself in later Thursday morning and was arrested on four misdemeanor charges, including leaving the scene/failure to report, operating a vehicle in a reckless manner and running a stop sign. He was transported to Boone County Jail where he posted $1,000 bond.
