(Salt Lake City-AP) -- A Brigham Young University player was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs after he hit two parked cars in Provo.

Running back Fahu Tahi was arrested around two a-m Wednesday in Provo for D-U-I and for an outstanding warrant on a vehicle violation in West Valley City. He was released from jail later that morning.

Tahi, who returned to the team last fall after serving a Mormon mission, could face disciplinary action from the school's honor code office for this and a previous incident in which he allegedly punched a man outside a Provo movie theater.

Tahi has pleaded innocent to a Class A misdemeanor assault for that incident. A trial is scheduled for June 12th.

Tahi is scheduled to be suspended for one game next season.
