Back up quarterback for the University of Miami was arrested for DUI. Kevin Olsen, a redshirt freshman, is the younger brother of Greg Olsen who plays tight end for the Carolina Panthers. Olsen is also alleged to have a fake or stolen ID.
Olsen is likely not 21 or older and likely had a fake ID that was used to get alcohol. Olsen’s BAC is not part of the initial reports. In Colorado, even if an underage person has a BAC that is below the legal limit, that person can still be charged with a baby DUI. In addition, depending on Olsen’s conduct when the fake ID was found, he could be charged with false reporting or ID theft.
In Colorado, false reporting is a misdemeanor and occurs when a person provides false identifying information to law enforcement. In more aggravated situations, providing a stolen ID could result in ID theft charges. In Colorado, ID theft is a class 4 felony.
Olsen posted a $6000 bond. He was released from the University following the incident.
