DB Victor Davis latest A&M player arrested

Victor Davis

It’s the weekend so, yeah, time to adjust the “Days Without An Arrest” ticker yet again.

The latest to reset things back to double zeroes is Texas A&M’s Victor Davis, who was arrested recently and charged with shoplifting.  The defensive back allegedly lifted unnamed items from a Kohl’s department store at some point in the last two weeks.

The university was unaware of the arrest when reached by the San Antonio Express-News Saturday, although the Rosenberg (Tex.) Police Department did its part to ensure as many people as possible were aware by posting the following poster on its Twitter account:

(Writer’s note: That’s Davis pictured in the lower right)

A three-star member of the Aggies’ 2013 recruiting class, Davis was rated as the No. 35 safety in the country.  After redshirting as a true freshman, Davis was/is expected to compete for playing time as a cornerback this fall.

Davis’ arrest continues a disturbing off-field trend for head coach Kevin Sumlin‘s Aggies.

Since December of last year, seven A&M players have been arrested on various charges, including one three times (Darius Claiborne) and another twice (Isaiah Golden).  Those two were ultimately dismissed by Sumlin.  The possible replacement for Johnny Manziel at quarterback, Kenny Hill, was arrested for public intoxication in March while former five-star wide receiver Ricky Seals-Jones was charged a month later with disorderly conduct.

The other three scofflaws — wide receiver Edward Pope, defensive back Howard Matthews and defensive end Gavin Stansbury — were arrested on various outstanding warrants following a traffic stop a couple of weeks after Seals-Jones’ incident.

Additionally, promising safety Kameron Miles, a four-star member of the Aggies’ 2013 recruiting class, was dismissed by the program back in March for violating unspecified team rules.

    I’m going to go out on a lim here and say that he will never graduate college, never make the nfl and this will not be his last arrest. Thieves will always steal and can never be trusted

    Behold the dominance of the SEC.

    Must be taking lessons from Jameis Winston…

    And everyone of these players will be on the Ag football team and playing this Fall. Sumlin does not run a disciplined program.

    Success or no success, I’m thinking that the influential group of mature TAMU supporters and donors who call themselves “old army” can’t be too happy with the direction the team has taken under Sumlin in legal matters. All teams occasionally have players who get in hot water with the law for being young and stupid, but I don’t think I can recall having any team with more players visiting the judge than agricultural. They may have to put a cell at the Brazos county jail on retainer, sort of like a hotel room, if this keeps up. You have team doctors and team strength and conditioning people…has any NCAA program ever had to have a team attorney?

    They need to collude with the local police department the way FSU does with Tallahassee PD and Texas does with Austin P.D. For example, no one talks about “disturbing trends” in Tallahassee when FSU’s most important player and the leader of the team was caught shoplifting.

    That said, I hope the Ags cut Davis loose. I doubt the kid is that good of a player anyway.

    This is what happens when character is ignored in the recruiting process. Most of these clowns were no doubt problems in high school too.

    Keep that head up Kev…just blame it on DeLoss. Just a few more arrest and they will have themselves a penal team…maybe Burt or Adam can lead them to that BCS game.

    Sumlin has to do something… We’ve already lost 2 starters on D to stupidity… If he continues to let these kids do whatever they want with no consequences, he’s going to lose them all….

    Sometimes you have to kill a hostage as they say… He can’t just drop the hammer now though because it won’t be fair. He needs to incrementally start increasing discipline such that players will be scared to what the next guys punishment might be.

    Greenwave- that is not the local cops. Rosenberg is around 100 miles from gomerville

    Hopefully he wasn’t trying to shoplift more blonde hair dye. “Because You’re Not Worth It” Victor.

    The kid’s mug shot looks better than his Aggie profile pic. Maybe the numbers state otherwise, but it seems the number of arrests has increased since TAMU joined the SEC. Gotta keep up w/ the Jones’.
