Report: 13 ULL football players bond out of jail after theft arrests
LAFAYETTE - University of Lafayette football players are suspended indefinitely after being arrested and charged with criminal conspiracy to commit felony theft Tuesday night, local media reports.
According to KATC, surveillance video shows the 13 players went to a dorm room on April 5 and stole $2,400 worth of a student's belongings. Police say the players surrendered after warrants for their arrests were issued.
The players are Matthew Barnes, Joe Dillon, Robert Hunt, Denarius Howard, Jarvis Jeffries, LaDarrius Kidd, Terik Miller, Damar'ren Mitchell, Trey Ragas, Simeon Thomas, Levarious Varnado, D'Aquin Withrow and Jordan Wright.
