North Dakota captain arrested on DUI charge

University of North Dakota hockey defenseman Matt Greene failed a field sobriety test in Minnesota over the weekend and might face a drunken driving charge, authorities said.

Fighting Sioux coach Dave Hakstol said the athletic department was looking into the matter, "and it is being handled internally at this time." He declined further comment.

Greene, a junior from Grand Ledge, Mich., was stopped by a police officer in Warroad, Minn., shortly before 2:30 a.m. Sunday, police chief Laurence Wright said.

Greene was allegedly driving 39 mph in a 30 mph zone and was weaving, the chief said. He said Greene failed the physical sobriety test and a breath test and was arrested for driving under the influence.

Wright said any formal charges against Greene would not be filed until after the results of a urine test, which are not expected for at least two weeks.

Wright said Greene was cooperative with officers.

Greene does not have a listed telephone number in Grand Forks.

The defenseman has played in all 26 UND games this season, with no goals, six assists and 39 penalties.
