Darius Paul, a redshirt transfer from Western Michigan and the younger brother of former Illinois star Brandon Paul, was arrested early Tuesday morning for underage drinking and resisting arrest.

The Champagne News-Gazette was the first to report the arrest.

Paul, who is 20, ran from police when they spotted him and another man walking across a parking lot at 3:20 a.m., the report said. an officer eventually tackled Paul outside his apartment building, where he admitted that he had been drinking.

Both of the charges against Paul are misdemeanors with maximum penalties of 364 days in jail.

Paul averaged 10.4 points and 5.7 boards at WMU as a freshman in 2012-2013 before transferring.

    A 20 year old was drinking and he ran away from campus security. I would act upset……. If it wasnt something I did a dozen times 15 years ago.

    As an illini fan, I think I am most upset that he got run down.
