(TSX / STATS) -- Auburn backup quarterback Sean White was dismissed from the team following his arrest for public intoxication, coach Gus Malzahn announced Monday.

"Sean White is no longer a part of our football program at Auburn," Malzahn said in a statement. "He has made poor decisions that are not in the best interest of our program, and more importantly, himself. We appreciate his time at Auburn and wish him nothing but the best."

The 21-year old White, who had just served a two-game suspension for undisclosed reasons, was arrested by Auburn police at 2:45 a.m. Sunday, according to Auburn police.

Jail records show that White was taken to the Lee County Detention Center at 3:28 a.m. Sunday. He was jailed on $500 bond.

White, a redshirt junior, started 16 games between 2015 and 2016 but lost the preseason competition for the job to transfer Jarrett Stidham. White was limited in the spring while recovering from a broken right forearm suffered in the Sugar Bowl.
