According to a source, Finley turned himself in to Auburn police late Thursday morning after learning a warrant had been issued for his arrest. The charge, the source said, relates to a previous traffic violation where Finley was ticketed for not wearing a helmet while riding a moped.
The event involving Finley was known to Auburn prior to his arrest. No statement was immediately available from a team spokesperson. Thursday around 3 p.m., head coach Bryan Harsin will hold a press conference. On the eve of fall practices, offensive coordinator Eric Kiesau will speak at 2 p.m.
Along with real freshman Holden Gardiner, Oregon transfer Robby Ashford, Texas A&M transfer Zach Calzada, and Oregon transfer Robby Ashford, Finley was scheduled to enter fall camp as the one of four quarterbacks vying for Auburn’s starting position this season.
The only returning member in the quarterback room is Finley, who moved to Auburn last summer. He played in the Tigers’ final three games of the 2021 season after Bo Nix suffered an ankle injury late in the season. Finley completed 70 of 128 passes for 827 yards, six touchdowns and one interception in nine games as a sophomore.
