ESPN College GameDay host and reporter Harry Lyles Jr is off the show after allegedly hitting a stopped police car driving while under the influence.

“I deeply regret what occurred and take full responsibility for my actions,” Lyles Jr. wrote in a statement shared on Twitter. “I have and will continue to fully cooperate with authorities and look forward to resolving this expeditiously.”


Lyles was arrested and charged with DUI after last week’s program in Los Angeles, the NY Post reported. The ESPN crew was in town for Oregon’s win over UCLA.

In a tweet on Twitter, Los Angeles Police Department's Hollywood Division said that two of its officers were stopped at a marked crosswalk as a pedestrian crossed the street. While stopped, a vehicle rear ended the back of the police car.

The driver, who was later identified as Lyles Jr., was "nearly 3x the legal limit and subsequently arrested", the tweet said.

In a second tweet, LAPD said that the officers involved sustained minor injuries.

Lyles Jr. was taken into custody and later released on a $100,000 bond. He is due back in court on Feb. 24, 2022.

In a statement, ESPN said they are aware of the incident.

Lyles Jr. is a sideline reporter on ESPN’s Thursday night college games and hosts GameDay’s social media edition every Saturday. He also is a writer for ESPN.com.
