The University of Hawaii sent out a release today saying quarterback Cayman Shutter’s suspension related to a DUI arrest in the spring will be for the first four games of the 2012 season.
From the release:
“I hope Cayman learns from this experience and can become a better person because of this,” head coach Norm Chow said. “It’s unfortunate what happened but hopefully this serves as a lesson to the rest of the team that their actions – on and off the field – may result in stiff penalties. I have not yet determined whether Cayman will participate in fall camp, nonetheless, we welcome Cayman back to the team.”
“In my communication with Cayman, he is remorseful and understands the seriousness of the situation,” UH Athletics Director Jim Donovan said. “When a student-athlete takes responsibility and is remorseful, I’m more inclined to give them a second chance. I’ve made it clear with Cayman that there will not be a third chance. The four-game suspension is a significant penalty given the seriousness of the violation that occurred.”
