We know the economy is in rough shape, but can times really be this tough? Just over a month after we saw a college basketball player get himself into trouble for stealing a taco from a street vendor, and we now have college football players getting arrested for stealing snacks. According to the Metro News, West Virginia junior Darwin Cook and senior Terrence Garvin were arrested Tuesday in Morgantown for stealing three bottles of Gatorade, a couple bags of chips, and a couple bags of pretzels from a Sheetz convenience store.
Cook, 20, and Garvin, 21, are facing misdemeanor charges after a surveillance camera showed them taking the items without paying and helping themselves to a plastic bag behind the counter to put them in.
“I have been made aware of the situation and am gathering facts at this time,” WVU coach Dana Holgorson told the Dominion Post according to the Metro News. “When all the facts are in, I will take the appropriate action.”
As The Big Lead pointed out, Holgorson has had to do a lot of fact gathering this offseason. Backup quarterback Geno Smith was also arrested last month after he was driving around drunk at night without his headlights on. The season can’t come soon enough for the Mountaineers.
