KNOXVILLE — Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray was accused of throwing beer bottles off the balcony of an apartment complex that damaged a vehicle on Monday, according to a report by the Knoxville News Sentinel.
No charges have been filed and the victim who owned the damaged car allegedly does not want to pursue further action after Bray offered to pay for any damages to the car.
Bray is heading into his junior season as the starting quarterback for the Vols. He has started 12 games for the Vols with an 8-4 record in his two seasons in Knoxville. Despite starting for only part of two seasons, he is 10th on UT’s all-time completions list with 272 and ninth in career passing yards with 3,832.
The California native was one of three representatives coach Derek Dooley brought to Birmingham last week to represent the Vols at SEC media days. Dooley commended Bray’s off-the-field attitude and work ethic in his comments in Birmingham.
“You have to live as the quarterback at Tennessee,” Dooley said. “If your lifestyle is not reflecting that, then it’s going to be hard to go out and perform your best. I’ve seen a real change in his maturity level. I’m hoping he continues on that path and I’m hoping it will net him some big results this fall.”
