Update: Drew is indefinitely suspended from the lacrosse team, per Coach Desko.

"We are aware of what happened and fortunately no one was injured," Desko said. "Kevin has been indefinitely suspended from the lacrosse team. We will continue to monitor this situation moving forward and handle the matter internally."

Also, JBren over at Orange44 breaks down Drew's legal situation and it don't sound good.

Kevin Drew, whom you might remember moonlighted as a basketball walk-on briefly, was charged with a multitude of crimes Monday morning according to Syracuse.com.

A senior Syracuse University lacrosse player is facing driving while intoxicated, hit and run and resisting arrest charges following a crash in a car owned by the SU lacrosse coach early morning Monday in the Westcott Street area.

The coach that car was registered to? Head coach John Desko. Oh goody.

Drew and Tim Desko are roommates and apparently the car was owned by Papa Desko but belonged to Son Desko.

Here's the full list of charges, if you're scoring at home:

  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Resisting arrest
  • Driving through a stop sign
  • Speeding
  • Hit and run
  • Failure to comply
  • Unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle

He learned everything he knows from Marcus Sales.

When asked how much he had been drinking, Kevin Drew told police, "A lot." No kidding.

He also got "one front kick strike to [his] chest area," adding injury to insult.

SU is apparently getting ready to respond to the incident. Drew was an Second Team All-Big East selection last season as a defensive middie. He scored six goals, tallied one assists and grabbed 33 ground balls.
