COLUMBIA — Missouri assistant football coach Bruce Walker was arrested by campus police late Monday on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

A campus police spokesman said the co-offensive line coach was behind the wheel of a parked car with its motor running outside the Mizzou Athletic Training Complex at 11:14 p.m.

Walker's attorney, Bogdan Susan, said the 50-year-old coach had returned from a bus trip to Lake of the Ozarks along with the Missouri football coaching staff and their wives.

Walker could not be located for comment Tuesday.

Walker has worked for Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel the past 14 years, including five years at Toledo.

Team spokesman Chad Moller said Tuesday the incident is under investigation. Missouri starts practice on Thursday.
