Report: LSU DT Trey Lealaimatafao suspended following arrest

Published Jun. 18, 2015 7:02 p.m. ET

Redshirt freshman Trey Lealaimatafao may have just jeopardized his future as a member of the LSU Tigers following his third off-the-field incident and first arrest in his one year with the team. 

According to The Advocate, Lealaimatafao has been suspended indefinitely by the team. 

Police records indicate Lealaimatafao dug through the pockets of an unnamed male victim after the victim had been beaten unconscious by “unknown suspects” in the parking lot of a bar. Lealaimatafao then allegedly punched the victim’s girlfriend in the face with a closed fist when she interfered.

If these allegations prove to be true, it's hard to see the redshirt freshman staying with the team, as this isn't the first time Lealaimatafao has found trouble while at LSU. He punched through a window in the team’s weight room in July, severely cutting his left arm, and he was arrested later for allegedly stealing a bicycle outside of the school's library.
