Cayman Shutter, regarded as UH's No. 2 quarterback, faces a possible suspension following his arrest on suspicion of drunken driving early this morning.
Shutter was released after posting $500 bail.
UH's code of conduct for student-athletes calls for disciplinary action following an arrest.
UH released this statement from Norm Chow:
"We are aware of the incident involving one of our student-athletes. We are in the process of gathering all the facts. We have a code of conduct which our student-athletes are to adhere to and we expect them to represent both the university and football program to its highest integrity. We will make a follow-up statement at a later date after we gather all of the information.”

It's spring break this week, and UH is essentially closed.
Those deemed to be "essential" are required to report to work. Topping the list are parking-booth attendants, custodians, the Stan Sheriff Center crew (led by Rich Sheriff) and the weight-room staff.
What's interesting is the Warriors have been told they have the week off. But that hasn't stopped many Warriors from participating in their own "unsupervised" workouts. There are inspirational signs posted throughout the lower campus. One of them is about working hard when nobody is watching. It appears many are taking that message to heart.
