Kiko Alonso Legal issues, college suspension, and reinstatement
On February 19, 2010 Alonso was arrested and charged with a DUI.It was a controversial situation for the Oregon Ducks football program, as it had gone through a large volume of player misbehaviour off of the field.
Chip Kelly and the program had been criticised greatly by fans for being too lenient on star players for the sake of winning just days prior to Kiko’s arrest. Coach Kelly made the decision to suspend Kiko for the DUI for the entire 2010 season.
In 2011 Kiko was given another chance to be a star on the Ducks football team, but he was arrested again in May 2011 for burglary, criminal trespassing and mischief. The charges stemmed from a burglary attempt on a female victim who reported that Alonso banged on her door and demanded to let him in to her home. The woman called 911, and Alonso smashed down her door and entered her home.
He was also found to be intoxicated from alcohol at the scene. Nothing was reportedly missing from the woman’s house which led to further speculation if this was a serious attempt of robbery or another public intoxication act of Alonso.
He pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced to probation, community service, and alcohol abuse counseling. His plea bargain allowed him to avoid going to jail. Despite calls from the local team supporters to kick Kiko off of the team, he was then given a third chance by Kelly, being re-instated to the Ducks football team in early September 2011 after completing over 200 hours of community service and the alcoholic awareness program.
