After being recently arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI) for the third time in the last five years, the University of Maryland men’s basketball assistant has resigned. According to a news report in The Washington Post, the man was arrested for the first time in 2008 in Kansas. In January 2012, Hill was suspended for two games by Maryland following his second driving under the influence (DUI) charge, after which he pleaded guilty to driving while impaired by alcohol. On October 2013, Hill was booked on five charges after being stopped in Laurel. He is expected to appear in a Howard County court on January 17.
A Maryland DUI conviction – whether it is a first-time offense or a repeat offense – can have significant consequences. Even a first-time offender faces jail time, court costs, significant fines, suspension of driving privileges and increased auto insurance premiums.
