An incident that occurred 10 months has come back to bite Caleb Saulo on his backside.
Back in July of last year, the Oregon State linebacker was charged with stealing a bicycle and was ultimately sentenced to, among other things, 10 days on a work crew. The only problem? Saulo didn’t complete the full 10 days because he was allegedly a bad boy on what was supposed to be the final day of his court-mandated work detail.
From the Corvallis Gazette-Times:
According to documents, Saulo “completed nine days of work crew and … was sent home with no credit on his last day of work crew for intentionally damaging a tree on the courthouse lawn with a shovel.”
That triggered the issuance of, the Gazette-Times writes, “a show-cause motion for Saulo to explain why he didn’t complete his work crew obligation.” Saulo blew off the hearing related to the show-cause motion late last month, resulting in a warrant for his arrest being issued. The warrant was served Tuesday and the player was arrested for failure to appear.
Saulo denied that he didn’t complete the work detail and was subsequently released from jail.
The Oregonian reports the football program is aware of the latest legal development involving Saulo.
Saulo, a two-star member of OSU’s 2012 recruiting class, played in 12 games as a redshirt sophomore in 2013. He is listed as a No. 2 outside linebacker on the Beavers’ most recent depth chart.
