After a period of relative calm on the legal front, it’s once again time to reset the “Days Without An Arrest” ticker back to double zeroes.
According to both Pullman Radio News and the Spokesman-Review, Washington State linebacker Logan Tago was arrested for second-degree assault and second-degree robbery. Both of those charges are felonies.
Tago was arrested when he came into the Pullman Police station to be interviewed by detectives in connection to a June incident. From the Spokesman-Review:
Tago and several other men approached a 23-year-old man early on the morning of June 4th, who was carrying a case of beer on California Street in Pullman. The alleged victim claims the group demanded his beer and assaulted him when he refused. The alleged victim suffered a concussion and the group stole the beer.
The alleged victim was able to positively identify Tago as one of his assailants. Thus far, Tago is the only individual who has been charged, although “other persons of interest have been identified” by detectives.
The sophomore started the Cougars’ season-opener at RUSH linebacker. He has been listed as a co-starter on the depth chart leading into the Week 3 game with Idaho.
Tago’s incident is the third involving assaults in the last three months for a current Cougar. Police are still investigating a brawl at a backyard party in July that allegedly involved multiple WSU football players and which one alleged victim was knocked unconscious for 10 minutes and another sustaining a broken jaw that’s going to require reconstructive surgery. Additionally, safety Shalom Luani was arrested in late August for second-degree assault.
News of the latest off-field issue involving a Wazzu football player comes just a short time after head coach Mike Leach very publicly ripped into his team for their on-field issues.
