Western Kentucky University quarterback and former Lexington Catholic High School football star Reese Ryan was arrested Saturday night by WKU police, according to jail records.
Ryan, a freshman, was charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place and displaying or possessing a canceled or fictitious license, according to the records.
He was booked at 11:25 p.m. Saturday and was released at 8:49 a.m. Sunday on a $1,000 bond, according to the records. No court date was set.
Ryan had no disciplinary problems while he was a student at Lexington Catholic, said his high school coach, Mark Perry.

"Reese was a stand-up guy at Lexington Catholic," Perry said. "He's a very mature guy and a fantastic kid."
The Western Kentucky football team is aware of the arrest, and Ryan will "face additional discipline within the program," spokesman Kyle Neaves said.
After taking over as Lexington Catholic's starter midway through his sophomore season, Ryan led the Knights to three consecutive 4A semifinals. He passed for 8,873 yards and 89 TDs in his career. He also ran for 745 yards and three touchdowns.
