May 22, 2008 – Missoula, Montana. James David Quinn, 22, is an offensive lineman for the University of Montana Grizzlies. Last July J.D. was busted for DUI and that case is still pending in the court system. After this initial arrest J.D. voluntarily entered a treatment program. Apparently, treatment has yet to be embraced by J.D.
On May 22nd of this year, Quinn was observed operating a vehicle with improper mud flaps, and making an improper turn. The police requested Quinn provide a breath sample and a blood sample. Quinn refused both requests. Quinn denies any allegations that he was consuming intoxicants.
Controversy seems to follow Quinn everywhere. He originally began his college football career with the University of Oklahoma. However, Quinn received payment for working at a Oklahoma car dealership. Being paid for working is not the issue. The fact that Quinn did not work at all, but was paid was an issue with the NCAA. The Okies were forced to vacate 8 wins from their impressive 2005 season because of Quinn’s actions. UO released Quinn from the team. Now the All-Big Sky lineman has been suspended for an indefinite period of time by the University of Montana.
