The Mizzou Tigers suffered another injury at quarterback, but it should not hurt them on the field.
Backup QB Corbin Berkstresser hurt his left knee during a practice last week. Berkstresser underwent surgery yesterday to repair his meniscus. Athletic officials say it is not clear when he can return to the field. Mizzou is already thin at quarterback after James Franklin hurt his shoulder playing Georgia on October 12.
Maty Mauk filled in well last week, leading the Tigers to a win of Florida last week and winning SEC Freshman Player of the Week honors. Mizzou hosts South Carolina Saturday. 6PM kickoff with all the action here on your voice of the Tigers.
CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - A former suburban St. Louis police officer faces sentencing Dec. 20 after being convicted of corruption for telling a female motorist she could either have sex with him or face a drunk-driving arrest.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 50-year-old Timothy H. Jones of Troy, Mo., was found guilty Friday in St. Louis County Circuit Court. Prosecutors are seeking a four-year prison sentence.
Jones was an officer in Country Club Hills. Court documents show that he pulled over a 24-year-old woman on suspicion of drunken driving on Interstate 70 in 2010.
After a field-sobriety test, he allegedly told her she could either be arrested or have sex with him. Court documents say he drove her in his patrol car to her home, where they had sex.
