PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - Washington State has dismissed wide receiver Drew Loftus from the football team after his arrest for allegedly trying to steal a couple of bottles of alcohol from a grocery store.
Pullman police say Loftus tried to leave the Dissmore's IGA store early Friday morning with two bottles of tequila shoved into the waistband of his sweatpants.
The Spokesman-Review reported Tuesday that he was arrested on misdemeanor counts of theft, minor in possession of alcohol and minor intoxicated in public.
The 19-year-old Loftus caught one pass for 37 yards last year as a freshman.
