And now we know the rest of the story.
Over the weekend, a Texas Tech sports information official announced — via Twitter, no less — that linebacker Daniel Cobb had been dismissed from the football program for violating unspecified team rules. One of those team rules, apparently, is being charged with a felony.
According to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, Cobb was arrested Sunday evening and charged with burglary of a habitation. The charge is a second-degree felony.
While details are fairly scant, the paper did offer up a bit of the narrative that led to the arrest:
The Lubbock Police crime report stated Cobb used force to enter into the apartment of a young woman on the 2400 block of Glenna Goodacre.
LPD Officer Brady Cross responded to a burglary call at 5:15 p.m. and stated in the report’s narrative that Cobb assaulted the woman upon entering the apartment, also damaging a door frame valued around $200.
While Cobb had started seven games in 2011, he had tumbled off the two-deep depth chart prior to his dismissal.
