DUI arrest isn’t the same as being found guilty

I saw the article about the former NU football player, and I thought it was unfortunate that you chose to run a front-page story under a banner headline. Being arrested for a DUI is not the same as being found guilty, but your article failed to mention that basic fact of law.

I understand why members of our community need to be informed, but I doubt if this style of reporting really helps us understand the truth of any matter.
