UH backup quarterback Shutter arrested on suspicion of DUI

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 12:55 p.m. HST, Mar 29, 2012

Police arrested University of Hawaii backup quarterback Cayman Shutter on suspicion of drunken driving this morning.

Shutter, 21, faces suspension from the Warriors for violating terms of the school’s code of conduct for student-athletes. Head coach Norm Chow is in China, and did not immediately respond to messages.

Athletic director Jim Donovan also could not be reached. Police said Shutter was arrested at 3:15 a.m. on the H-1 Freeway near the Punahou Street overpass and taken to the main police station on South Beretania Street.

He was released at 4:30 a.m. after posting $500 bail. Shutter is a 2009 graduate of Punahou School. He will be a fourth-year junior this coming football season. Chow had listed Shutter as the No. 2 quarterback behind David Graves.

The Warriors began spring training with three practices last week. They are on hiatus this week because of UH’s spring break.

what a lo lo, he should be in bed at that hour, getting up early and training on his own with the rest of the squad. If you really want it , you gotta go get it and make the sacrifices necessary, obviously Shutter doesn't take his responsibilities seriously, hard lesson. His late grand dad I believe was David Shutter attorney.

Yes, let the legal system take its course, but Coach Chow has the right and responsibility to take appropriate action. Which I hope is not dismissal or suspension.

Shutter should suffer the consequences but I doubt he's deserving of being cut. Some people here are overreacting, I'd say at least half of these commenting angels have technically driven under the influence. Chill out.

don't throw him under the bus just yet. the court will decide if criminal punishment is warranted. chow will decide if and when to apply any school discipline which shouldn't be much different from any other scholarship recipient that gets arrested for dui. shutter can still recover from this mistake and be a great player and productive citizen. he's young enough to rebuild from this.

Takes someone else's misfortune to bring out the idiots. Shutter (and no, the late attorney was David Schutter, I believe) will have to face the consequences of his poor judgment, and I'm sure he'll learn from it and move on. As for the idiots, I think they've doomed all their lives.

First of all Due Process. At 4:30 AM he should be in bed somewhere. This is a State School not BYU or BYUH or Oral Roberts. I am not even sure that the Special Code of Conduct is Legal. All student enrolled in UH represent UH, UH is known as one of the biggest party schools on the Planet. Why the double standard for him and other team players. Answer is the School Administration has something to hold over the Players Heads to control them called scholarships. Education is a key to overcoming poverty and holding the loss of that over someones head can give people unfair control over others. I would plead Not Guilty and make them prove their case. If i was thrown off the team pending the outcome I would sue, for potential loss of income as a pro. The flip of that is he needs to stop being out at 4:30am and he need to Not Drink and Drive. If found Guality pay your fine and learn your lesson. Thankfully no one was hurt.

it would be interesting if chow is going to have a double standard like many coaches do, similar to mack with brown and the receiver this past year. they committed a crime but because of pressure the charges were dropped , and brown and his friend were exonerated, serving very little punishment. had these guys were third or fourth stringers, they would have been kicked off the team. because they were "stars" they were kept on. is shutter in their category or expendable? if cayman is considered important to the team, any punishment would be relatively light, but if he is not in the plans for the team, he will be kicked off the team.

ooops - is all i can say. it all depends on how he handles himself from now on. we'll see if he can toe the line for the path he chose to follow. athletic talent only goes so far - the rest is personal accountability, humility, and attitude. young shutter has to show more of the last three - if he has any.

Actually the real story is what the heck is Chow doing in China when it is his first year as head coach and he should be eating, sleeping and working in his UH Manoa office 24 hours a day preparing for his game and getting ALL of his players head into the game for football and academics. Last year it was not a good omen 2 UH players before season started got arrested for fighting outaide a nightclub. Now a UH quarterback supposedly fighting for player time is arrested for DUI, all the while the head coach is in China. I highly doubt China is a hotbed for football recruits. Thats why I thought Chow was not the right choice as I felt he was to old and halfway to retirement and not nearly as 'hungry' as a younger coach who would be obsessed with turning around the UH program. I hope I am completely wrong but for a critical UH player to be more concerned in preseason about getting wasted then getting together with his teamates and coaches to become a winner both on and off the playing field, is not a good sign at all. Yes, many top teams have similar problems, except those teams, like Boise State, have gained so much 'momentum', problem players can be readily kicked out since top teams are so deep, as the kicked out players replacement is just as good or better than the expelled student. Unfortunately UH is so deficient, a single player like this quarterback who was arrested for driving while intoxicated will have negative consequences for the entire team and their chances for success for the upcomimg season. No way a coach hoping to turn around a problem team can be succesful if the coaches' priority is to travel abroad instead of taking care of his 'kids'. Yes, UH is in spring break, HOWEVER, if any head coach hopes to turn around the the failing UH football team, then there 'ain't' no such thing as 'vacation'.

athletes are not allowed by NCAA rules to practice during spring break. Chow apparently had this trip planned before he took the job, bought and paid for. Coaches need a vacation too, the whole staff, many taking this time to actually move their families to Hawaii. Plus because of the lack of proper budgeting and the states wasteful spendings, 1/2 the place is closed, if not more, to save on electricity costs. For real. Cayman, I wish you the best, you're a good kid who just made a really stupid mistake many of your nay sayers have made but just never got caught. Hope you dont lose your scholarship over this.

I can somewhat accept your argument on the need for vacation, however getting arrested for driving under the influence is so serious an infraction and violation of law, that Shutter really needs to lose his UH scholarship. Just one day ago some drunk driver killed a 3 year old boy waiting at a bus stop with his mother. DUI is way more serious than fighting outside a nightclub or a coach calling opposing players 'fa g-t dancers'. It is possible people don't want Shutter removed from the team because he was expected to play a key role on the team. Yes, people make mistakes and should be forgiven, however this 'mistake' is beyond 'forgiving'.

Inverse: Its called Spring Break. Staff get it also. He may have family or business in China, to include Church Business who is to say its not a requiting trip. Or to set up UH TV Broadcasts, or any number of things. Perhaps he is a Hero in China because of his accomplishments and the overcoming of Bias. Both Anti Mormon and Racial Bias. He is the very first regarding more then one thing and on more then one level. There is only so much you can do in and around your office. We have Cellphones and Internet these days and Computer Desk Tops are very mobile. I am sure he will make good use of his time. I do not plan on going to any games because the Stadium is Wet. I go to High School Games because the Stadium is Dry at those times. The only game I have been to is several years back BYU vs UH. The Drinking was Disgusting and there where No or very few Police DUI Checks Points. I swore I would not subject my children to that again. Duke tried to take care of the problem but that effort failed. It appears that Gambling and or a Lottery spoil Hawaii's image so I can't win 500 million dollars investing a small amount of my small change. However Public Drunkenness on National TV is acceptable. Maybe he just want to ride on a rubber raft down the Yellow River.

How many players on the UH football team can afford a vacation/trip to China? The point is he expects his student/players to make great sacrifices in order to turn the UH football program around. In return, players expect their coaches, or leaders to make similar sacrifices. I understand many in Hawaii go to China on church business, that is very worthy and noble. HOWEVER the point which is more important? The UH football program or going on a vacation or religious pilgrimage? It is called PRIORITIES and these kids are smart, and they can identify the pretenders who just talk the talk but don't walk the walk. If you think my point sounds fanatical, how do you think navy Seals become so good at what they do? The entire Seal team from the soldiers to their leaders are fanatical with a singular purpose and that is why they excel when any other group would fail. If winning isn't everything for UH football then don't waste student and taxpayer's monies paying for a high priced coach and running the University into a multi-million dollar deficit because of athletics; just go down to NCAA division I-AA, pay coaches minimal amounts and don't worry about losing, because winning is NOT that important.
