Virginia forward Evan Nolte was arrested over the weekend and charged with being drunk in public.

The rising junior, who averaged 2.8 points this past season as a redshirt sophomore, is 20 years old.

According to the police report obtained by Newsplex.com, he was stopped around 1 a.m. on Sunday morning. Nolte told officers he had had about eight drinks. Officers tried to put him into a taxi, but he took off running instead. That’s when he was arrested.

Virginia released the following statement: “Coach Bennett is aware of the incident involving junior forward Evan Nolte early Sunday and is handling the matter internally at this time.”

Nolte has to be smarter here — when a cop officers to put you in a cab when you’re drunk and underage, you get into that cab — but at the end of the day, he is a college kid and college kids tend to do things like get drunk on Saturday night.

The real issue is the shirt that he is wearing. Is that Nick Nolte?
