STANFORD, Calif. (AP) -- Stanford linebacker Shayne Skov was arrested and jailed last weekend for driving under the influence.

A Stanford University Department of Public Safety spokesman says Skov was arrested for driving under the influence Sunday at about 2 a.m. The incident, first reported by The Stanford Daily student newspaper Monday night, occurred on campus.

Stanford coach David Shaw says Skov's arrest is "a matter we're taking very seriously" and Skov "will be responsible to adhere to any legal responsibilities regarding this event along with ramifications which will be determined by the program."

Skov led the Cardinal with 84 tackles and had 7½ sacks two years ago. He tore a ligament in his left knee at Arizona in the third game of the 2011 season, sideling him for the year.
