A football player at Arizona State University struck and killed a pedestrian early Saturday in the Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale while allegedly driving drunk.

Stanley Lambert, 22, a senior redshirt defensive end at ASU, was arrested on two DUI-related charges after he struck 23-year-old New Jersey native Norah Bruther as she was crossing a street at about 1:30 a.m. local time, according to the Scottsdale Police Department.

"He was investigated at the scene and arrested for DUI-related charges. He was booked for one count each of DUI – Impaired to the Slightest Degree and DUI – BAC of .08% or more," said the department's spokesperson Aaron Bolin.

Lambert was released from custody and will await additional charges following blood-alcohol level lab results.

"The investigation is ongoing and pending lab results for the blood alcohol level. Additional charges are possible," Bolin said.

Bruther died on the scene.

"She was here visiting and staying near the area where the collision occurred," Bolin said.

The Arizona State Sun Devils' athletic department on Sunday released a statement.

"We are aware of the tragic situation over the weekend involving one of our student-athletes. Our thoughts are with the family and friends of all involved. We are still gathering information and we do not have any other statement at this time," said Mark Brand, Arizona State Senior Associate Athletic Director for Media Relations.
