OGDEN -- Weber State student assistant football coach Trevyn Smith was arrested early Friday morning after police saw him driving his motorcycle without headlights.

Smith was a standout football player from 2006-2009.

Around 1 a.m., Smith was driving northbound on Harrison Boulevard near the intersection with 28th Street without any headlights on, Ogden Police Lt. Tony Fox said. Officers stopped him and found that he did not have his driver's license or insurance and registration for the motorcycle.

They also found that his license was suspended, and he had an active warrant out of Provo for failing to appear in court.

He was arrested and booked into Weber County Jail for the failure to appear and for driving on a revoked or suspended license, which are class B misdemeanors.

"We're going to handle this as a university employment issue," WSU athletic director Jerry Bovee said. "We're going to follow the policy and we'll handle it as a personnel matter. We'll act appropriately and follow university policy."

Smith, the Wildcats' all-time leading rusher and a four-time All-Big Sky Conference first team honoree, was charged in 2005 with being a minor in possession of alcohol in Salt Lake City, and then during his freshman season (2006), was arrested for unlawful consumption of alcohol by a minor by a WSU campus police officer.
