A miserable start for the Washington State football program continues to get worse. On Tuesday, reports surfaced that linebacker Logan Tago was arrested on two felony charges late Monday night.
According to Jacob Thorpe of the Spokesman, Tago was arrested for second-degree assault and second-degree robbery.
From the report:
Tago and several other men approached a 23-year-old man early on the morning of June 4th, who was carrying a case of beer on California Street in Pullman. The alleged victim claims the group demanded his beer and assaulted him when he refused. The alleged victim suffered a concussion and the group stole the beer.
Tago started the season for the Cougars and was once again expected to start in Week 3.
However, the felony arrest not only puts Tago’s immediate availability in question, but raises further questions about his long-term future with the program. If Tago is found guilty, he will likely be dismissed from the program.
Washington State head coach Mike Leach has previously said stealing, hitting a woman and drugs are reasons for dismissal.
A felony robbery charge certainly falls in the stealing category.
