Police lights

Chaska High School graduate Micah Roane is no longer a member of the Gophers football team after being removed due to a DWI arrest.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reported Roane, a walk-on from Shakopee, was arrested early morning on Sunday, Oct. 20 by University of Minnesota police for driving while intoxicated. 

The newspaper reported Roane was pulled over on his moped at 2:29 a.m. for driving without a headlamp and failure to make a complete stop near the U’s campus.

He was booked in Hennepin County Jail at 4:31 a.m. and released a few hours later.

Roane was a redshirt freshman and had not appeared in a game for Minnesota. At Chaska High School, he was named to the Associated Press all-state first team in 2017.
