UH quarterback Shutter pleads not guilty to drunken driving charge

By Stephen Tsai

LAST UPDATED: 05:15 p.m. HST, Apr 26, 2012

University of Hawaii quarterback Cayman Shutter entered a not-guilty plea today on a charge of drunken driving. 

His trial is scheduled for July 20 at District Court.  

Shutter was arrested at 3:15 a.m. on March 30 on suspicion of drunken driving. He was released an hour later after posting $500 bail. 

The incident occurred during UH's spring break. Head football coach Norm Chow was in China at the time.

Citing a violation of team rules, Chow announced on April 3 that Shutter would be suspended indefinitely from team activities, which included participating in the Warriors' spring practices, meetings and conditioning program. 

Shutter, 21, remains on scholarship and is attending classes. 

Shutter entered spring training as the Warriors' No. 2 quarterback behind David Graves. Graves and Jeremy Higgins are now bracketed at No. 1. 

Shutter did not attend this morning's arraignment. Dean Hoe, an attorney in the law office of Paul J. Cunney, entered the plea.

If he's convicted he should be kicked of of the team and taken off of scholarship. He should've pleaded no contest so he would've shown some remorse. He's just another person in total denial like all other drunk drivers.

bad decision, especially when he refused to take a breath test. this alone implicates his guilt. if he was not drunk or felt strongly so, he would have consented to the test. he was driving erratically, which adds to conclusion that he was intoxicated. it would have been better to plea deal, take whatever punishment and move on. his football career at UH is over anyway, even reinstated to the team, he will likely not play very much, and next year they have that transfer (Graham), which supposed to be better than any of the current QBs.

Since he is already suspended he should have pleaded no contest, he would get a slap on the wrist and be ready for football in the fall and everyone would have forgotten about the incident . Now with his trial set for July 20, he will be in the news again just around the time the team starts fall practice and if found guilty it could mean a longer suspension for him. Just my take on the situation.

Cayman do what a real man would do! Admit your guilt and take responsibility for your actions, give up your scholarship so another player more appreciative and deserving could have it. This year is over for you come back next year as a walk on and maybe you will understand how good you actually had it and hopefully you wont take it for granted next time. You could still be a role model, get out there and start talking to kids about your mistakes and if you can stop one from doing what you did it would be worth it.

YO! What happened to innocent until proven guilty? At least wait until the case is closed before you beat the crap out of him.
