    You would think that he would be smart enough to wait until after the draft to pull this shit; however, he did go to scUM.

    Arrested Illini players claim dorm incident was a prank

    Because of course they did.

    Wednesday morning, three Illinois football players, offensive linemen Darta Lee and Howard Watkins and wide receiver Zarrian Holcombe, were arrested on charges of home invasion and armed robbery. Thursday, the trio was officially arraigned on felony charges of residential burglary and aggravated robbery.

    The players, however, claimed that, according to first assistant state’s attorney Steve Ziegler, they were merely pulling a prank on the 19-year-old dormitory resident. From the Champaign News-Gazette:

    Ziegler said the trio is accused of entering the room of another 19-year-old man who lived in Bromley Hall and threatening him with a pellet gun just before 1 a.m. Wednesday in what they told police was a “prank or a joke.”

    “(The victim) was in bed with his door closed but not locked when three guys come into his room. They are all wearing dark clothing and they are all masked,” Ziegler said. “One of them produces what he believed to be a gun. Later he finds a BB gun on the floor of his room.”

    Ziegler said from his review of a synopsis provided him by Champaign police, it’s believed that Holcombe was holding the BB gun while Lee went through dresser drawers and Watkins went through the man’s wallet, which was on a table.

    “He recognizes Holcombe and Lee as residents of Bromley,” said Ziegler. “He says he calls them by name and they run out of his room. He later finds cash missing. What happens to Watkins is not clear.”

    Ziegler said after the victim realized he knew two of the alleged intruders, he followed them into the hall.

    “At that point, they are not wearing masks anymore so he knows it’s them,” Ziegler said.

    Report: Two Ole Miss players arrested for shoplifting
    The last thing Ole Miss needs right now is negative press, unfortunately, that’s exactly what has occurred Wednesday morning in Oxford.

    According to Antonio Morales of The Clarion-Ledger, defensive back Ken Webster and linebacker Detric Bing-Dukes have both been arrested for allegedly shoplifting. Morales reports both players were booked in the Lafayette County Detention Center, located in Oxford.

    Ole Miss has yet to confirm the arrests after Morales broke the news on Twitter.

    Making matters worse, both players are experienced defenders who were projected to be major contributors in the upcoming season.

    Report: $95,000 found in home of dismissed Kentucky S Marcus Walker arrested for drug trafficking


    And now we know a whole helluva lot more of the rest of this particular story.

    In the early morning hours of May 24, Kentucky safety Marcus Walker was arrested on cocaine and marijuana trafficking charges. Five days later, it was confirmed that, as a result of the arrest, Walker had been dismissed by Wildcats head coach Mark Stoops.

    Citing police records, reported Wednesday that a search of a residence Walker shared with another male turned up, among other things, nearly $100,000 in cash.

    After a search, $70,312 was found in a bag by a closet and another $25,000 was found in a box in the top-floor bedroom of a townhome he shared.

    The more than $95,000 in cash belonged to Walker, according to a property and evidence record obtained by SEC Country.

    During the search, police found 52.86 grams of suspected powder cocaine in a kitchen cabinet along with digital scales and packaging material. More than 5 pounds of marijuana was found throughout the house — in a water heater closet, a counter next to the stove, under a bed and in a backpack.

    Tavon Wells, Walker’s roommate, is facing the same drug trafficking charges.

    Here's a different "Police/Legal Blotter" case......

    Chinese court sentences former Ball State football player Wendell Brown to four years in prison


    As was reported to be the case with the UCLA hoops trio last November, perhaps it’s time for some presidential intervention on behalf of an American citizen mired in a legal black hole halfway around the world.

    On Thursday, the Associated Press is reporting, former Ball State football player Wendell Brown (pictured, left) was sentenced by a Chinese court to four years in prison. The charges stem from an incident in September of 2016 in which the 31-year-old Brown allegedly injured the eye of a Chinese man at a Chongqing bar.

    From Dan Wetzel‘s Yahoo! Sports column around Christmastime last year:

    On September 24, 2016, he attended a friend’s birthday party at a bar. As Brown’s side tells it, a group of locals asked Brown to have a drink with them. African-Americans, especially muscular, 6-foot, 225-pound African-Americans, stand out in Chongqing. Brown declined. They took it as a sign of disrespect and began hurling bottles at him. Brown was arrested for hitting a man. He asserts he never threw a punch and merely raised his arms to block the bottles being thrown at him.

    Brown went to trial in July of 2017; however, a verdict wasn’t rendered for another 11 months. On top of the four-year prison sentence, Brown had already been in custody for nearly 20 months prior to the court finding him guilty this week.

    All hope is seemingly not lost, however, as apparently the White House has gotten involved in Brown’s case. “Matt Liston, a fellow Ball State graduate, told ESPN‘s Outside the Lineson Tuesday that ‘both the Chinese government and the United States government have been working together on the case,'” wrote.

    “We are aware of reports that Mr. Brown has been sentenced to four years,” a spokesman for the U.S. Embassy in Beijing said after the verdict was handed down. “The Department of State takes seriously its duty to assist U.S. citizens abroad. We continue to closely follow his case.”

    Iowa’s Brady Reiff, arrested after allegedly mistaking police car for Uber ride, suspended for opener

    An off-field incident will have some on-field ramifications for one member of the Iowa football program.

    Kirk Ferentz confirmed at his turn during the Big Ten Media Days Monday that Brady Reiff has been suspended for the 2018 season opener. The announcement comes just a couple of days after the defensive lineman was arrested for public intoxication — BAC: .204 — for allegedly mistaking a police car for an Uber ride.

    JUCO player who knocked out ref with in-game punch signs with USC

    Tuesday, Clay Helton confirmed that Schirmer has signed a financial aid agreement with USC and will join the Trojans football team shortly as a redshirt sophomore. The head coach stated that the football program was aware of the violent issue with the game official and deeply vetted the lineman before signing him.

    “What we learned from the administrators, coaches and counselors is that we were dealing with a tremendous young man, a young man that is a tremendous student, great person and a guy that we had no question would be a great member of our Trojan family.” Helton said. “We listed the expectations that we expect for Bernard and we understand that he knows those expectations and he will do a great job here as a Trojan.

    “We are very excited.”

    At the time of the incident, Schirmer claimed it was an accident and apologized.

    “My friends were trying to pull me back away from the defensive end,” Schirmer said. “I didn’t know the ref was right [beside] me, bear hugging me. …

    “I didn’t mean any of that to happen. I’m truly sorry about what happened to the ref.”

    Yeah....that video sure tells a different story than his version. The ref had been on him for 10 seconds and his helmet was facing directly towards that ref when the punch got thrown. I'm sure Brett McMurphy is all over this any moment now....

    VT DB D.J. Crossen Charged with Making Illicit Video Without Consent

    Suspended Virginia Tech defensive back Dwayne Lamont Crossen has been charged with making a video of an unclothed woman without her consent.

    Crossen, 19, has an arraignment scheduled for Monday on the misdemeanor charge.

    Known as D.J. Crossen in most football references, the former Greensboro, N.C., player attracted notice earlier this month when it became known that he had been suspended from Tech’s team since September.

    Virginia Tech said in a statement the suspension was for an unspecified violation of university policy.

    A Tech athletics spokesperson referred back to the statement the school released earlier this month when asked about Crossen’s arrest on Friday afternoon. The school will have no additional comment.

    “D.J. Crossen has been suspended since September 2018,” the statement said. “He is subject to the policies set forth in the Virginia Tech Code of Student Conduct.”

    Crossen was allowed to practice throughout the fall — he was just suspended from competition — but that won’t be the case this spring. He was suspended at the start of the 2019 calendar year by the university. A university suspension prevents a student from attending classes or participating in any school activities.

    The arrest warrant for Crossen listed a date of Feb. 8 for the illicit video. The same date is contained in court docket records.

    However, a search warrant issued last fall for Crossen’s residence also contained an account of him making a video of a woman and said the incident was reported on Sept. 23.

    According to last year’s search warrant, a woman accused Crossen of making a video of her while she and Crossen engaged in consensual sex. The woman told investigators that Crossen asked if it would be OK to make a video and she told him no. Later, however, the woman received a Snapchat message that included a video of her “in a state of undress.”

    The woman also received a message saying the video would be posted online “everywhere.” Since then, the woman received a number of messages from people asking to meet her, the search warrant said.
