ESPN personality Harry Lyles Jr. off air after DUI arrest



Up-and-coming “College GameDay” personality Harry Lyles Jr. will be off the show Saturday because of a DUI arrest after last week’s program in Los Angeles, The Post has learned.

Lyles Jr. is a sideline reporter on ESPN’s Thursday night college games and hosts GameDay’s social media edition every Saturday. He also is a writer for ESPN.com.

LAPD Hollywood division said in a tweet on Sunday, “Last night, 2 of our officers were stopped at a marked crosswalk as a pedestrian crossed the street. While they were stopped, a vehicle rear ended the back of their car. The driver of that car vehicle was 3 x the legal limit and subsequently arrested.”

An LAPD spokesman confirmed to The Post it was Lyles. His bail was set at $100,000. He was released on bond. He is due in court on Feb. 24.

ESPN’s crew was in Los Angeles for Oregon’s win over UCLA.

ESPN did not have immediate comment.
