Darren Carrington II, the Oregon Ducks red shirt junior wide receiver, is in trouble again. Carrington didn’t start the last two games and according to The Oregonian, it sounds like the reason is that early in the morning on October 30th, he pushed a man into the street, breaking the man’s arm. According to the victim, an Oregon graduate, it was a case of mistaken identity.
They said Carrington yelled at the group that he’d “heard what you said about me” from a car. Holland said the group did not have a car that night and believes that Carrington confused Holland or his group with someone else.
They said they saw a shoulder-width tattoo of Carrington’s last name on his back, because he was shirtless. After the alleged shove, Holland and witnesses also said Carrington began yelling at the group as they began walking to the hospital, saying, “‘I’m Darren Carrington, No. 7, wide receiver for the Ducks, that’s right, Darren Carrington, San Diego, California,'” Holland said.
Carrington dressed as The Joker for Halloween. (Pictures below) He failed a drug test before the 2015 National Championship Game and was suspended the first 6 games of last season. In October 2015 he was cited for an open container. He has 35 catches for 493 yards and 3 touchdowns this season and is projected to be picked in the NFL Draft next year.
