Following her father’s resignation as head coach of West Virginia’s men’s basketball team on Saturday, Bob Huggins’ daughter launched an ardent defence of her father.
Huggins’ SUVI stopped in the midst of traffic in Pittsburgh on Friday about 8:30 p.m. ET with a flat tyre and the driver’s side door open. He was then taken into custody on a DUI charge. Huggins was ordered to step to the side by responding officers, but it was noted that he had difficulty doing so, according to the authorities.
Officers questioned him more and thought he might be under the influence, so they requested him to get out of the car. According to the police report, he failed the required sobriety tests and was immediately taken into custody and brought to a different location for additional testing. Officers discovered empty beer bottles and cans in the trunk as well as a garbage bag full of empty beer cans in the front of the car, according to the Herald-Dispatch.
His blood alcohol level was later found to be double the legal limit.
Jacque Huggins claimed that her father was not an alcoholic in a lengthy Facebook post criticising West Virginia University president E. Gordon Gee and the school’s board.
