Tennessee's Davis Will Be Disciplined Internally

October 2, 2007

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee reserve linebacker Dorian Davis, who was cited for fighting in his Iowa hometown over the weekend, will be disciplined internally.

The 20-year-old sophomore, who has played in all 16 of his career games at Tennessee, mostly on special teams, was charged with disorderly conduct Saturday evening in Iowa City.

Coach Phillip Fulmer said today Davis could have handled the situation better. He did not elaborate on how Davis would be disciplined.

According to Iowa City police, Davis got into a verbal altercation with the friend of an acquaintance and then pushed him and struck him.

Davis was arrested and charged but released without going to jail. He has a November seventh court date.
