Auburn commit Richard Jibunor was arrested early Sunday morning and is facing charges of driving under the influence and failing to maintain lane/improper driving on a road.

Jibunor, a four-star outside linebacker from Athens, Ga., was arrested at 4:38 a.m. in Clarke County, Ga., according to Athens-Clarke County arrest records. The arrest was first reported by the Auburn Plainsman.

He was released from custody at 7:18 a.m. on $2,000 bond -- $1,500 for the DUI charge and $500 for the improper driving charge.

Jibunor, a Nigerian native who moved to Athens, committed to Auburn on Thanksgiving and was expected to be among the Tigers' early signees during the early signing period in December. However, Jibunor did not sign due to a miscommunication and will instead sign on National signing Day in February.
