WVU’s second-leading returning rusher arrested

The offseason can’t get here fast enough for every college football coach across the nation.

While the details are extremely scant at the moment, Mike Casazza of the Charleston Daily Mail tweeted a short time ago that running back Wendell Smallwood (grow up, people) was arrested Monday.  The charge?  It’s unknown at this time.

Somewhat ominously, Casazza wrote that “[the WVU police d]epartment says chief will wait until Tuesday to comment on matter.”

WVU head coach Dana Holgorsen is aware of the arrest.

“We are looking into the matter and will take action at the appropriate time,” a statement from the university read.

Smallwood’s 221 yards were good for second on the team last year. That total is second to only Dreamius Smith‘s 494 yards among returning Mountaineers.

    According to Arre.st he was booked for being a “FUGITIVE FROM JUSTICE”

    I knew it had to be serious. For an athlete to get arrested in Morgantown it’s almost unheard of. PACman jones and Chris Henry totaled zero arrests in Morgantown. And both have went on to break every nfl record for arrests.

    Y’all don’t know the half of what you guys are talking about this is his family member responding to this bs. Wendell will be home scottfree because the “justice” system is trying to pull a fast one but when he comes home he will be back on the field like nothing ever happen and the reason why they haven’t gave at information on charge is because they have none. Kapeesh good day now stop with the rumors.

    It’s not a rumor that he was arrested. Kapeesh.

    The “justice” system deemed it necessary to extradite him back to Delaware, where he will be charged with intimidating a witness in a murder trial. Who doesn’t get charged with a felony like that? Guess it was the “justice” system starting the rumors of him getting arrested. These are serious charges pal. Also no bail. Very serious. He’s looking at a few years at his new university
