— -- Florida State strength and conditioning coach Vic Viloria was arrested on DUI charges early Saturday morning with blood-alcohol levels of .124 and .125.

The legal limit is .08.

According to the Tallahassee Police report, Viloria was seen "passed out" behind the wheel of his truck at a traffic light. When awakened by a police officer, Viloria claimed he was coming from work where he had consumed "multiple alcoholic drinks" and had "three 'big' drinks while in his office on FSU campus."

Viloria was released from the Leon County Jail early Saturday morning.

The Seminoles released the following statement Saturday afternoon: "We are aware of the reported incident and are in the process of gathering more information. The issue falls under the human resources policies for university employees, which restricts further comment at this time."

Coach Jimbo Fisher declined to comment on Viloria's arrest after Saturday's practice.

According to the Florida State employee handbook,?a violation of alcohol and drug code could result in punishment ranging from letter of reprimand to termination. It could also include a rehabilitation program.?

In the case of Viloria, those could factor into any potential penalty he receives for admitting he had "multiple alcoholic drinks" while on campus.?

Viloria, who was also booked on property damage charges for hitting a traffic sign, signed a contract extension with Florida State in July.?This is his seventh year on the Seminoles' staff. He was been credited with using GPS technology to help in player training and conditioning.

Florida State is ranked fourth in The Associated Press Top 25 preseason poll and opens the season Sept. 5 against No. 11 Mississippi in Orlando, Florida. The Seminoles are also being featured as part of Showtime's "A Season Inside" series, which debuts Sept. 6.
