Rinse, wash and repeat. There is once again trouble with the Ole Miss football program.
This time around, it involves two players who were arrested for shoplifting.
According to a report from Antonio Morales of The Clarion-Ledger, cornerback Ken Webster and linebacker Detric Bing-Dukes were arrested this week for shoplifting. The news was confirmed by the Lafayette County Detention Center.
Ole Miss interim head coach Matt Luke is “gathering facts on the matter.”
Webster is a former full-time starter who missed the 2016 season with a knee injury, while Bing-Dukes has been part of the team’s linebacker rotation. Last season, Bing-Dukes recorded 41 tackles.
Ole Miss opens its 2017 campaign on Saturday, Sept. 2 against South Alabama.
After such a tumultuous offseason filled with non-stop scandal and NCAA investigations, the Rebels will be hoping to put it behind them and start pushing towards a more positive future for the program.
