UTSA wide receiver Joshua Cephus was booked Monday and charged with DWI for having blood alcohol content over .15 when he was involved in a car crash on December 9, 2022, according to

Per the report, Cephus, then 21 years old, was driving at 3:25 a.m. and attempted to make a left turn at the intersection of Babcock Road and UTSA Boulevard near UTSA's campus when he rolled over his vehicle. Cephus and his passenger, another UTSA football player, declined to be treated by Emergency Medical Services at the scene.

The San Antonio Police Department said in its report that Cephus was "suspected of DWI as he had been drinking," and he was taken to the Central Magistrate's Office to provide a blood sample.

Court records show Cephus posted bail and is set to be arraigned on August 9.

Following the crash, UTSA suspended Cephus from all team activities and the Cure Bowl loss against Troy. The 6-foot-3-inch wideout returned, however, for all spring activities.

The senior, who was second on the team with 87 catches for 985 yards and six touchdowns in 2022, was expected to step in as quarterback Frank Harris's primary target following Zakhari Franklin's transfer to Ole Miss.
