UW vs Oregon

Wyoming linebacker Cassh Maluia tackles Oregon running back Mattrell McGraw during their game last season at War Memorial Stadium in Laramie.

Wyoming starting linebacker Cassh Maluia was arrested early Saturday and charged with suspicion of driving under the influence, underage consumption of alcohol and driving without a valid driver’s license, according to the Albany County Detention Center.

Maluia, 19, was arrested by the Laramie Police Department and has since left the detention center on bond. The arrest was first reported by the Laramie Boomerang.

UW spokesman Tim Harkins confirmed that Wyoming athletics is aware of the arrest but has no comment at this time.

Public court records show Maluia was previously arrested for underage consumption of alcohol in August 2016. He was found guilty and fined $145.

Maluia, who will be a junior in the fall, started every game at weak-side linebacker last year for the Cowboys. He recorded 74 tackles in 2017, fourth most on the team. His interception sealed Wyoming’s overtime win Sept. 23 over Hawaii. As a true freshman in 2016, he played in 13 games, starting one. Rising sophomore Ryan Gatoloai-Faupula is listed as Maluia’s backup.

The Compton, California, native was signed by Wyoming as a two-star safety out of Paramount High School.
