After allegedly causing the collision that led to the arrest of former teammate T’Vondre Sweat for DWI, Burrell allegedly left the scene.
According to an affidavit obtained by KXAN, Travis County court records show that former Texas Longhorns linebacker S’Maje Burrell is facing a felony charge for allegedly causing the accident that led to the April DWI arrest of former Texas defensive tackle T’Vondre Sweat.

Burrell faces a third-degree felony charge for failing to stop and provide aid following an injury-related collision. That offense in Texas entails a possible five-year prison term as well as a $5,000 fine.

Shortly before five in the morning on April 7, on the service road in the 13600 block of North Interstate 35 SB, Burrell is said to have been driving a 2020 Dodge Charger when it collided with Sweat’s 2023 Ford Bronco. A witness who was in the Charger’s passenger seat claimed that Burrell rear-ended Sweat’s Bronco, flipping it onto its side and giving him minor cuts that lasted for a few days.

When police officers got to the scene, Sweat admitted to being the driver of the Bronco, which smelled like alcohol, had glassy eyes, and had the smell of burnt marijuana. Sweat admitted to police that he had two or three tequila shots before getting behind the wheel. Sweat’s breath sample tested at.105, above the legal limit of.08, and a blood sample was also obtained after he failed field sobriety tests.

According to the passenger in his Charger, Burrell ran away from the scene because he was intoxicated. Over 12 hours after the collision, Burrell’s father, Lorenzo, an officer with the Fort Worth Police Department, called the APD to report the incident.

A statement from Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian stated, “We’re aware of the situation involving S’Maje Burrell and have suspended him indefinitely from all team activities for conduct detrimental to the program,” a few days after the accident.

Burrell declared his intention to use the NCAA transfer portal following his suspension.

According to the 247Sports Composite rankings, Burrell—a unanimous four-star prospect out of Fort Worth North Crowley in the 2023 recruiting class—was rated as the No. 29 linebacker and the No. 334 player in the country. Out of 25 offers, Burrell selected Texas over USC, Florida, Florida State, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Oklahoma.

The Tennessee Titans selected Sweat in the second round of the 2024 NFL Draft. Burrell is still inside the portal and hasn’t been taken into custody yet.
