FSU corner arrested after alleged iPad theft


There’s a bizarre story coming from Tallahassee this weekend as Florida State cornerback Avis Commack was arrested Friday on a third-degree felony of grand theft.

According to, the alleged theft happened back on Dec. 6, when a female victim was studying in a computer lab where the football facilities are located. A police report of the incident states the victim left her station to get a drink, and when she went to leave the computer lab a short time later, she noticed her backpack, which was carrying an iPad, was gone.

A FSUPD investigator was able to track the iPad through logins to the university network, and the device recorded three logins with Commack’s student information. More from Warchant:

The officers came to University Center D – the football facility and offices – to meet with Commack. [Deputy Chief Jim] Russell said that Commack handed over the iPad and told the officers “Here, this is the iPad I found.”

Commack told officers that he found the iPad in the stairwell on Dec. 8 and wiped away the old information on the iPad and inputted his own earlier in the day on Dec. 9. Accordnig to the report, he told officers that he realized it was wrong to keep the iPad.

Commack wasn’t immediately arrested, but he did turn himself into police on Friday after the victim issued a warrant for his arrest on Wednesday. The redshirt junior was booked and released by the Leon County Sherriff’s Office and wasn’t required to post bail.

Interestingly enough, Commack graduated from FSU this past weekend as well (go ahead and insert “he was just getting himself a graduation present” jokes at your own leisure).

    Well, at least he realized he was going to get caught and turned it in. Of course, his excuse for how he found it is rather lame, and not that original. He must not be too dumb, since he got his degree in 3 years or he is a red shirt junior and got it in 4 years. Either way, considering half the players don’t get one, he is no dummy. Not a smart thing to do though, using it after he ummmmmm acquired it. He admits he knew it was wrong to keep it, so that is half the battle.

    Woebegong – that wasn’t the way I read it. It sounds like he turned it over AFTER being confronted by the police.

    Whatever – a really dumb mistake. This will probably wind up on a permanent record somewhere – sooooo stoopid…….

    And nothing would have happened to him had the victim not wanted to press charges.

    It sure wasn’t the smartest move the kid could have made for sure. I never classify deliberate acts like that as mistake though. The kid knew what he was doing. He just thought he could get away with it. Our society likes to call them mistake. I guess I may be a little too hard or what ever. If he had a college degree, he didn’t make that mistake. It was a deliberate act, and he should have to pay for it.

    hey Ben,

    Check out the Arrington Jenkins arrest at FSU. Its a doosey. Kid stole a scooter. Said “anyone who leaves a motorcycle out should expect to have it stolen.”

    Avis should transfer to Auburn. He might win the Thorpe award and go on to be rookie of the year in the NFL. Fool

    Right. In the immortal words of Arrington Jenkins changed however slightly “anyone who leaves an IPad out should expect to have it stolen” LOL.

    Where do they finds these guys. Oh nevermind.
