Florida State punter Logan Tyler is part of an investigation by the Tallahassee Police Department following a DUI crash in August, the Tallahassee Democrat reported on Wednesday.
Coach Willie Taggart said that Tyler was suspended indefinitely when asked about the punter’s status on Monday afternoon. FSU officials announced just before kickoff on Saturday against ULM that Tyler had been suspended.
A “traffic crash” occurred on Aug. 22 at 2:08 a.m., according to a TPD report obtained by the Osceola. (Large portions of the report are redacted but some details are provided.) A man, who is presumed to be Tyler, was unresponsive on the ground and transported to TMH’s emergency room. He had no serious injuries but had abrasions to his face and his left eye was swollen shut.
No arrest has been made in the case.
Tyler punted seven times for 44 yards, including a long from 53 yards, in FSU’s season opener on Aug. 31 against Boise State.
Walk-on Tommy Martin had five punts for a 42.8-yard average in FSU’s game against ULM on Saturday.
As a junior in 2018, Tyler broke the single-season school record with 82 punts for 3,545 yards (an average of 43.2 yards per punt) to lead the ACC. Of those punts, 23 went for 50-plus yards.
Tyler was not observed during the open portion of Tuesday’s practice.
