For all intents and purposed Anthony Julmisse’s football career is over.
While serving an indefinite suspension from the Colorado football team, Julmisse was arrested on multiple charges, two of which are felonies. The Boulder Daily Camera was the first to report the arrest.
You’ll recall that less than month ago, Julmisse was arrested for dragging a woman down a hallway and attempting to throw he down a flight of stairs. With apparently too much time on his hands as a result of his indefinite suspension, Julmisse got himself into some more trouble. He was arrested on charges of robbery, first-degree criminal trespass of a vehicle, criminal mischief and careless driving.
The robbery and first-degree criminal trespass of a vehicle charges are felonies.
With his status with the Colorado football team already tentative at best, this will likely put an end to his playing days. Because there is no such thing as “indefinite-er suspension,” expect the team to announce he has been dismissed from the program at some point. His latest arrest essentially forces their hand, even if they had reservations before.
Colorado has already released an official statement regarding the arrest. And while it stops short of announcing his dismissal, it does state their “concern” over news of the latest arrest.
“While we’re still gathering information about this latest case, we are concerned to hear of these allegations,”the statement read. “It is important to note that in any criminal case involving a student-athlete, there are three separate processes that can result in discipline — a determination by the coach, court sentencing and sanctions from the Office of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution.”
Julmisse was an incumbent starter at the cornerback position this year. He played in all 14 of Colorado’s games last season. It appears likely that will be his last taste of higher-level organized football.
