Few was arrested last month after law enforcement observed the coach’s breath smelling of alcohol and noted that he had bloodshot eyes during a traffic stop. Despite initially telling police he had not been drinking, Few’s breath samples provided at the scene registered blood-alcohol concentrations of .119 and .120, which is above the legal limit of .08.
