Cologne caper lands ‘Cuse QB charges, suspension

Break Line

Yep, it’s officially the offseason. According to the Syracuse Post-Standard, Syracuse backup quarterback Terrel Hunt was arrested Tuesday night and charged with petit larceny.  The incident stemmed from the 18-year-old allegedly lifting some cologne (pictured) from a department store. From the paper:

While shopping at the Hollister store at the Carousel Center mall, Hunt selected one Hollister “Breakline (sic) Fragrance” valued at $44 from the sales floor. He concealed the merchandise in a Hollister Co. shopping bag and left the store without paying. Hunt was confronted outside the store and escorted to the security office by Hollister’s loss-prevention officer where the merchandise was recovered without incident.  Hunt was cooperative and very apologetic. Hollister sought prosecution.

If only the NCAA membership had adopted that $2,000 stipend instead of tabling it for further discussion… Anyway, the school is aware of the legal situation and, as a result of the arrest, has indefinitely suspended Hunt from all football activities. As a true freshman in 2011, Hunt did not see any playing time.

    What’s “petit larceny”… exotic thievery?

    Leave the stipend out of this. If you’re a thief, you’re a thief. It’s not like he stole a loaf of bread because he was starving.

    This has less to do with money than it does a young kid thinking the rules don’t apply to him.

    You can take the kid out of the GHETTO; but you cannot take the GHETTO out of the kid! That’s how the ‘Cuse rolls these days. Schwartzwalder turning over in his grave!
