ISU defensive line coach released from jail following DUI arrest

POCATELLO, Idaho ( KMVT / KSVT ) Fifth year Idaho State defensive line coach Steve Fifita's eventful weekend lands him behind bars.

He was booked at Bannock County Jail Friday night after having an open container and a blood alcohol content level two and a half times the legal limit, both misdemeanors.
