Penn State All-American Wrestler Ed Ruth Charged with DUI

Penn State wrestler Ed Ruth has been charged with two counts of DUI from an incident that occurred last month, according to court documents.

State College Police say they received a report of a possibly intoxicated man outside the Taco Bell on East College Avenue at about 2 a.m. Nov. 13. Police say Ruth was trying to park his car in front of the Taco Bell when he hit a tree and got his car on the curb.

Police then took Ruth to Mount Nittany Medical Center to determine his blood alcohol content. According to court documents, Ruth's BAC was .281 percent, about three times the state driving limit.

Ruth, a two-time national champion and three-time All-American, was suspended from the wrestling team in November for one month for violating team rules. Neither Ruth nor the team has revealed why he was suspended, but it's likely linked to his DUI arrest.

Ruth's preliminary hearing is scheduled for Jan. 8 at the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte.
