Mocs defensive back arrested for disorderly conduct, public intoxication and resisting arrest

UTC defensive back Montrell Pardue (21) returns a fumbled ball for a 99 yard touchdown during the Mocs' first-round FCS football playoff game against Weber State at Finely Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 26, 2016, in Chattanooga, Tenn. UTC won 45-14.

A UTC football player was arrested early Saturday morning after an alleged drunken disorder in Douglas Heights, a student apartment building on Douglas Street.

Montrell Pardue, 20, is a defensive back for UTC. When officers stepped out of the main elevator on the fourth floor, they found him shouting expletives at those nearby, according to court records.

A crowd of people had gathered around the commotion, some of them residents of the building who stepped out of their rooms to see the source of the noise, the police report stated.

When an officer told Pardue to come forward to speak with him, Pardue allegedly called the officers "punk a-- white b------."

One of the responding officers said he could smell alcohol on Pardue.

When the officer attempted to arrest Pardue he pulled away and yelled more expletives.
