Vanderbilt has suspended defensive line coach Vavae Tata indefinitely after he was arrested for DUI, the Tennessean is reporting.

According to the report, Tata was charged for being off his tatas on Saturday night, blowing a .18 on his breathalyzer test, more than twice legal blood-alcohol limit of .08%, according to an affidavit released by Davidson County. Which was quite good going, if you think about it.

It’s not Tata’s first brush with the law: He was arrested for DUI in 1997 and convicted in 2000.

Vandy, which underwent a new coaching regime with former Stanford defensive co-ordinator Derek Mason after James Franklin went to Penn State, had a relatively successful signing day.

And Vanderbilt’s also no stranger to brushes with the law – some of its former students are still in the middle of a rape case.
